Noel Gallagher has announced his highly anticipated return, with his latest EP, ‘Black Star Dancing’, which will be released – digitally and on 12″ vinyl – on the 14th of June 2019. The star revealed details of the hotly anticipated five-track album, including the title track.
The announcement of the new EP, ‘Black Star Rising’, from the former Oasis guitarist, will be his first release since, the release of his Mercury-nominated album, ‘Who Built The Moon’, which was released in November 2017. The latest EP, ‘Black Star Dancing’, is led by the title track of the same name and sees Noel taking influence from an unlikely place.
Speaking about the title track, ‘Black Star Dancing’, Noel Gallagher, said: “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!”
The five-track EP, ‘Black Star Dancing’, features two more new tracks ‘Rattling Rose’, and ‘Sail On’, alongside a 12″ version of A-side ‘Black Star Dancing’, and a remix by London-based French DJ and producer, The Reflex – whose real name is Nicolas Laugier.
Noel’s latest EP comes after he teased new music was on the way, yesterday. Noel took to Twitter to tease fans with new material, by sharing some lyrics alongside some psychedelic artwork. Taking to social media he wrote: “Nature is dancing but we ain’t done yet.” This sent fans into meltdown and they were left speculating that something new from The High Flying Birds man, is on the way.
