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.

 

The full EP track-listing is:

 

  1. Black Star Dancing
  2. Rattling Rose
  3. Sail On
  4. Black Star Dancing (12” Mix)
  5. Black Star Dancing (The Reflex Revision)

 

The release of the new single and EP announcement comes as Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds prepare to embark on a short run of sold out intimate live shows across the UK and Ireland.  The 11-piece line-up will then follow these dates with a host of headline festival appearances and will close the summer with a month long North American co-headlining tour with the Smashing Pumpkins, beginning in August.
