Noel Gallagher has released ‘Shoot A Hole Into The Sun’, the first new material from his collaboration with Amorphous Androgynous, online. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen to the track.
The former Oasis man, who has been working on the follow-up to his debut solo LP ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ with the duo, will put out the track as the B-side to his latest single ‘Dream On’.
‘Dream On’ will be released on March 12 via Gallagher’s own Sour Mash label.
The release of the material comes just weeks after Gallagher told NME that the collaboration had turned into a “right fucking saga”.
He explained that the dance duo had missed the deadline for finishing the album – October 23 last year – and thus the release had been pushed back: “Unfortunately for them, they’ve only delivered a couple of tracks and they’re trying to mix it while I’m on the road… and it’s not working.”
Gallagher added that he plans to continue working on the material during a break in touring this July, meaning the release is “more likely to be next year now”.
Noel Gallagher will be presented with the Godlike Genius Award at the NME Awards tonight (February 29). Gallagher, who will pick up the gong at the ceremony at London’s O2 Academy Brixton, said of his win: “I would like to thank NME for bestowing upon me such a great accolade. I have dreamt of this moment since I was 43 years old. I accept that I am now a genius, just like God.”
