Noel Gallagher Has Found A Long Lost Solo Album

Noel Gallagher has found a copy of a lost solo album he thought he’d destroyed for good in his sock drawer.

Shortly after leaving Oasis in 2009, Noel worked with experimental production duo Amorphous Androgynous on what would have been his debut solo record.

The ‘space rock’ album was eventually shelved in favour of his work with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, with only one track, Shoot a Hole Into the Sun, released as a B-side to his new band’s single Dream On.

Noel previously claimed to have disliked the record so much he destroyed every trace of the music – but has now revealed copies still exist.

“I did find a copy of it recently in a sock draw,” he told DJ and comedian Matt Morgan in a YouTube chat. “The masters (tapes), somebody has them, the masters have not been destroyed – but it won’t be coming out any time soon.”

However, the 51-year-old rocker appeared to have a change of heart as he went on to say that it’s a project he might like to go back to eventually.

“It might be nice to go back and revisit it in years to come, because Shoot a Hole into the Sun is f**king great and there might be more stuff like that in there. Best to give it a bit of distance though I think,” he mused.

He went on to say that the album “just wasn’t right for the time” – a much mellower stance than he took in 2015 when he told Noisey.com that he’d wiped all traces of the album off the face of the Earth.

“There’s no bootleg because I own the master and I destroyed it,” he claimed. “My manager’s not even heard it. I wouldn’t play it. It was so underwhelming to me that I never played it to anybody.”

Since then his music has gone in a more experimental direction, with his latest album, the Mercury-nominated Who Built the Moon, inspired by psychedelic and glam rock.
