Ever since forging out on his own in 2011 with his solo debut album, Noel Gallagher has had a keen interest in creating some danceable, rhythmic music. After that album cycle, he started a project called Amorphous Androgynous that promised to tackle experimental/electronic music, but it never materialized.
Today, he hit that sweet spot with the release of Black Star Dancing, a new EP from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds that features both Gallagher’s signature sound and some new approaches, including dabbling in more experimental production flourishes. It was previewed in recent weeks with its trippy title track:
The EP, which features three new songs and two “Black Star Dancing” remixes, can be heard below via Spotify:
It’s worth pointing out, given their ongoing and seemingly never-ending feud, that Noel’s brother Liam Gallagher saw fit to release his own new music within the past week or so, as well. Because of course he did!
The new music from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds also comes right in time for Gallagher’s summer tour, which will find him sharing the stage with Smashing Pumpkins and AFI on an admittedly unexpected outing, genre-wise.
