Noel Gallagher prepares Record Store Day release
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds are releasing a vinyl for Record Store Day on April 21.
The ‘If I Had a Gun’ singer and guitarist’s project will release the 12 inch record containing four tracks – The Good Rebel’, ‘Let The Lord Shine A Light On Me’, ‘I’d Pick You Every Time’ and ‘Shoot A Hole Into The Sun’ – which have previously been released as B-sides.
The records will be pressed on opaque white heavyweight vinyl, individually numbered and limited to 2,000 copies for the UK.
Noel has long been a supporter of record shops – which have severely depleted in number with the rise of internet shopping and downloads – and recently said if he ruled the world he would make it mandatory for people to buy records.
He said: ”I would pass a law that a made people buy records. And I would make record shops open up again – particularly where I live, where there isn’t a record shop.
”I’ve been forced onto the internet to get music, which is a disgrace.”
Noel also recently said he’d like to collaborate with Damon Albarn – who’s band Blur released their first track in seven years, ‘Fool’s Day’, for Record Store Day in 2010.
He said: ”If I was gonna make a record, it would be with Damon. For a start, he’s as mad as a box of frogs. Number two, he’d get loads of hip-hop dudes working on it, which itself would be f***ing mental. And number three? It would be a better record.”
