The new Oasis album has a “mega” title (because everything about Oasis is “mega”), Dig Out Your Soul. It’s just the kind of album title you’d expect from Manchester City’s most famous supporters. I’m an Aston Villa fan, the best we have is Nigel Kennedy, Ozzy Osbourne, and Prince William. My God.
The band’s seventh album will be released in good ol’ Blighty on October 6th, so expect an Irish release, as usual three days beforehand. Single ‘The Shock of The Lightning’ will raise anticipation levels when it’s released on September 29th. The song is written by Noel with Liam on vocals.
Noel commented on the track:“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.”
He also had this to say about the album itself: “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.”
Something different from the Gallaghers so? Probably not, I’d say it’ll just sound like another Oasis album (not necessarily a bad thing). After hearing Chris Martin chime on about a “latin feel”, it’s hard to take anything artists say seriously. Have they heard their own music? And, it’s always hard to take anything Noel Gallagher says seriously. MEGA!
