Listen to the single “Black Star Dancing” HERE
02 MAY 2019 (TORONTO, ON) - Today, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds release a brand new single – “Black Star Dancing”. The single, produced by Noel, is taken from the EP of the same name - available digitally and on 12” vinyl to pre-order now – to be released on June 14th. Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will headline Isle of Wight Festival the same day.
Noel says of the single: "It manages to combine the influences of David Bowie, INXS, U2, Queen, Indeep AND ZZ Top FFS! ... 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!”
Featuring new kaleidoscopic artwork by Gareth Halliday, the EP includes 2 new tracks “Rattling Rose” and “Sail On,” as well as a 12” mix of “Black Star Dancing” and a remix by London-based French DJ/producer Nicolas Laugier, aka The Reflex.
