Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds has dropped a reflective new single “Wandering Star.” The song comes off the band’s upcoming EP, Blue Moon Rising, which is set for release May 6th, 2020.
Gallagher, who produced the track himself, premiered the song on BBC Radio 2. “It was written in Abbey Road last November on the same day I wrote ‘Black Star Dancing,'” the musician said in a statement. “It’s that good, it sounds like it took 5.4 people to come up with it. It’s already a live standard and we haven’t even played it yet.”
