It’s only been a few months since Noel Gallagher’s latest album Council Skies hit the shelves, but its follow-up is already on the way. The former Oasis singer discussed his plans for the future in a recent interview and said he’s heading back to the studio to record his next album this winter.

Gallagher recently told The Sun he had to take a break from writing music because he has a lot of songs left to record. He’s planning to get back in the studio this winter and get the older material out of the way so he could start writing some new music.

“In the pandemic, there was nothing to do all day so I just wrote songs. There are another two albums-worth of material there. I think I’m going to be back in the studio in January, so we’ll see where it goes from there,” Gallagher told The Sun.

The singer’s latest album under his solo moniker Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Council Skies, came out back in June. It debuted at no. 2 on the UK Albums chart and was preceded by the singles “Pretty Boy”, “Easy Now”, “Dead to the World”, “Open the Door, See What You Find”, and the title track “Council Skies”.
