The former Oasis member Noel Gallagher recently returned with a brand new song ‘Pretty Boy’ that features former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr.
Noel Gallagher releases new song
Gallagher teased his return last week with new music after promising a new album with his High Flying Birds project, the follow-up to his 2017 LP, ‘Who Built The Moon?’. Last year, he released a best-of album, ‘Back The Way We Came: Vol 1 (2011-2021)’. ‘Pretty Boy’ has now arrived as the first preview of the TBA new album, which is set for release next year.
Speaking about inclusion of Marr in the song, Gallagher said:
“For this new record it was the first thing I wrote, the first thing I demoed and the first thing I finished, so it’s only right that it’s the first thing people get to hear.
“Massive shout out to my mainest man Johnny Marr for taking it somewhere special. Oh … and watch out for a cameo from me in the video … first one to spot me wins a bag of Flamin’ Hot Wotsits Giants!!”
Speaking on the Pub Talk podcast, the singer-songwriter recently talked about his former band, Oasis and how it kept him focused on his career instead of drugs.
“My fallback was always my work,” he said. “In Oasis I was the sole songwriter so I always had my work. If I didn’t do the work then the band was going to fall apart. The partying side of it and the drugs and all that, I treated that as a bonus. I didn’t get caught up in anything other than it was just a laugh.”
