Oasis' seventh album proper, Dig Out Your Soul, will be released on October 8 via Big Brother.
The new album is preceded by a single, 'The Shock Of The Lightning', on September 29. Says Noel Gallagher of the band's new material:
"I wanted to write music that had a groove; not songs that followed that traditional pattern of verse, chorus and middle eight. I wanted a sound that was more hypnotic; more driving. Songs that would draw you in, in a different way. Songs that you would maybe have to connect to - to feel.
"If 'The Shock Of The Lightning' sounds instant and compelling to you, it's because it was written dead fast. And recorded dead fast. 'The Shock of The Lightning' basically is the demo. And it has retained its energy. And there's a lot to be said for that, I think. The first time you record something is always the best."
