Following on from the news of their forthcoming Australian tour in support of U2, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds today release their new EP, ‘Black Star Dancing’, via Sour Mash / Caroline Australia.
Featuring new kaleidoscopic artwork by Gareth Halliday, the EP includes the title track, ‘Rattling Rose’, ‘Sail On’, a 12” mix of ‘Black Star Dancing’ plus a remix by London-based French DJ/producer Nicolas Laugier, aka The Reflex.
Noel says of the title track: “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!”
This release follows a hat-trick of Number 1 albums for Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – most recently the Mercury-nominated ‘Who Built The Moon?’, which achieved gold certification less than two weeks after its release in 2017. It’s also a record breaking 10 consecutive chart-topping studio albums in the UK for Noel.
