Incredibly, it’s been 2 years since the release of ‘Chasing Yesterday’, the platinum-selling previous album from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. The first taster of the group’s new material comes in the form of single ‘Holy Mountain’, a collaboration between the ornery Gallagher and none other than the Modfather himself, Paul Weller. Described by many as Noel’s psychedelic album, it should be interesting to hear the rest of it and how it stands up against the other Britpop elder statesman who dared to go in a psych direction, Richard Hawley on 2012’s ‘Standing on the Sky’s Edge’. The video for ‘Holy Mountain’ waffles between shots of Gallagher himself singing and playing guitar, stylised views of his profile and other cartoons, with plenty of colours and blinking lights to give you that psychedelic feel without actually being under the influence of, er, something…

The ex-Oasis songwriter and cofrontman seems to be playing a bit of a game of chicken with his younger brother Liam, who released his solo album ‘As You Were’ last week. Older brother will be unveiling ‘Who Built the Moon?’ on the 24th of November. ‘Holy Mountain’ is out now on digital and 12″ vinyl formats from Sour Mash.
