And confirms new album Chasing Yesterday for March 2, 2015 release date…

Noel Gallagher has said that Morrissey is the funniest man he’s ever met.

Speaking to Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2 earlier this evening (October 13), Gallagher spoke about a night out in Los Angeles which he shared with Morrissey and Russell Brand. “He’s the funniest man I’ve ever met in my entire life. Absolutely side splitting.” He added: “He’s not got a good word to say about anyone – he’s very cutting. He bullied Russell!”

Following the announcement of Noel Gallagher’s new album, Chasing Yesterday, the frontman also revealed that he is yet to have a record deal. The album will be released on March 2, 2015 under the Noel Gallagher & The High Flying Birds name. However, speaking to Whiley, Gallagher commented: “I don’t have a record deal – my management have to put it in a suitcase and hawk it around the world.”

Gallagher went on to discuss the current state of the music industry, saying: “I don’t think the music business has a clue whats going on at the moment… I sat in a meeting recently, of how we’re gonna release it [‘Chasing Yesterday’]… I got so frustrated… there’s too much time devoted to how we’re gonna release the record, just get it out and get on the road!”

Discussing the record, Gallagher said he had only just decided on the title. “I dithered on the title for the album up until about two days ago when I had to submit it… I must have changed it 12 times!” He added that he now ‘hates’ his choice. “As soon as it went I thought ‘I hate it!”
