Listen: Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – Black Star Dancing

This morning, I received this new single from Noel from 3 different PRs/pluggers, which is very unusual.

I think it’s far to say that this isn’t the best thing that Noel has ever released but it continues his pursuit of different sounds following his last album, which I have to say wasn’t an instant hit for me but has grown into one of my favourite albums that revisit plenty of times.

On the press release, in typical Noel fashion, he says “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 is the first, and title track, from a new EP, which features new songs ‘Rattling Rose’ and ‘Sail On’, alongside a 12″ mix of Black Star Dancing plus a remix by The Reflex.

Oh and by the way, I like it!
