Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds release a brand new single – ‘Black Star Dancing’. The single, which is produced by Noel, is taken from the EP of the same name – available on limited edition colour 12” vinyl– released on 14th June, the same date that Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds headline Isle of Wight Festival.
Noel says of the single: “It manages to combine the influences of David Bowie, INXS, U2, Queen, Indeep AND ZZ Top FFS! … I might have been watching too much Top Of The Pops recently … anyway, it’s ‘dope’ … not my words, but the words of Nile Rodgers who literally danced in the studio when he heard it!”
Featuring new kaleidoscopic artwork by Gareth Halliday, the EP includes 2 new tracks ‘Rattling Rose’ and ‘Sail On’, a 12” mix of ‘Black Star Dancing’ plus a remix by London-based French DJ/producer Nicolas Laugier, aka The Reflex.
The release of the new single and EP announcement comes as Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds prepare to embark on a short run of sold out intimate live shows across the UK and Ireland. The 11-piece line-up will then follow these dates with a host of headline festival appearances across the summer. The shows, which also include a huge homecoming gig at Manchester’s Heaton Park, will give fans the chance to hear the new material for the first time.
Thisrelease follows a hat-trick of Number 1 albums for Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – most recently the Mercury-nominated ‘Who Built The Moon?’, which achieved gold certification less than two weeks after its release in 2017. It’s also a record breaking 10 consecutive chart-topping studio albums in the UK for Noel.
