Noel Gallagher's new project Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds will be releasing its self-titled debut on November 8th. Gallagher enlisted several longtime friends to round out the High Flying Birds, and he found the process to be more creatively fulfilling than the production of past Oasis records. "I was sick to death of writing out lyrics for other people. It was a very serene, peaceful process of recording," he explained to Rolling Stone earlier this summer.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds is a personal record for Gallagher. "I just write these songs because they're real to me and they're coming from a place of truth. And that's it. I don't give a shit about behind different. I want to be the same. And that in itself makes me different," he previously told Rolling Stone.

Song Stories


Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
