Noel Gallagher premieres a second song titled ‘Do The Damage’, taken off his upcoming album due out next year.
Chasing Yesterday is due out on March 2nd 2015 and is the second LP from the singer and his band High Flying Birds.
‘Do The Damage’ is the B-Side to Gallagher’s debut single ‘In The Heat Of The Moment’. It will feature as a bonus track on the deluxe edition release of his forthcoming LP Chasing Yesterday.
Speaking about the song to NME, Gallagher says: “‘Do The Damage’? It might be the 23rd best song I ever wrote. It was – for about a year – gonna be the opening track on the album until the 22nd best song I ever wrote appeared.”
It’s the first album that Gallagher has produced himself, he said producing the record was a “a major pain in the arse”.
At a recent Facebook Q&A, Noel said, “It’s not that I’ve ever had people telling me what to write or what direction to go in, but managing sessions from one end of the week to the other proved extremely difficult. I had all these people looking at me and saying: ‘right, what are we doing today?’ I was making the whole thing up as I went along.”
Not only does the singer dislike producing, he doesn’t even like picking a title for his album. “Effectively it doesn’t really have a title, I couldn’t really come up with a title for it and every time I did somebody would say to me that’s f**king shit. I literally came up with it last week but it’ll have to do for now, if I could change it I would change it.”
Noel really just wants the fans to call it what they want. “If I could stick an album out with a plain white sticker on it and say ‘Call it what you want’ I would.”
Noel Gallagher plays Dublin’s 3Arena on March 4th 2015.
