Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have released a new single entitled Black Star Dancing.
It’s one which sees Gallagher delving even deeper into the 80s, disco-fused influences of recent work and is the lead track of an EP of the same name which has been set for release on June 14th.
“It manages to combine the influences of David Bowie, INXS, U2, Queen, Indeep AND ZZ Top FFS!,” Gallagher, who also produced the track, has said.
“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!”
During the press rounds yesterday, Gallagher revealed this EP is the first of three he is planning to release this year with the last earmarked for Christmas time. Presumably, these were also recorded at Abbey Road when Gallagher was joined in the studio for the first time by the members of the High Flying Birds live band which was assembled for the touring in support of 2017’s Who Built The Moon?.
