‘Dead To The World’ is “by some distance my favourite tune on the album,” Noel says. “It has this film noir vibe. It’s not like anything else I’ve ever done before. It’s very melancholic, but I like that. I’m a Gemini – I’m as up as I am down, and the trick is to meet somewhere in the middle and turn that into music.”

The release of ‘Dead To The World’ follows fan excitement as mysterious orchestral clips filmed by Noel himself at Abbey Road Studios, London emerged on social media at the beginning of the year. Watch here.

‘Dead To The World’ is one of several songs on the album that boast strings arranged by the hugely talented Rosie Danvers, a long-time High Flying Birds collaborator. Noel says “Rosie gets what I do. Spending a weekend recording strings in Abbey Road… that’s one of the great privileges in a musician’s life. It sounds majestic.”

Recent singles taken from the forthcoming album, ‘Pretty Boy’ and ‘Easy Now’, were met with positive reactions by fans. Earlier this month Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds released The Cure’s Robert Smith’s remix of ‘Pretty Boy’, taking the single to a new spaced-out dimension.

‘Council Skies’, is available to pre-order now on CD, heavyweight vinyl with bonus 7”, LP picture disc plus various digital formats including a Dolby Atmos spatial audio version.

The Robert Smith remix is featured on deluxe limited-edition triple vinyl and 2CD formats which also include a live session version of ‘Live Forever’ and a remix from Pet Shop Boys. A printed handwritten lyric sheet of title track ‘Council Skies’ will be included with all album pre-orders via the official store.
