Noel Gallagher finds long lost solo album at home

Noel Gallagher has found a copy of a lost solo album he thought he'd destroyed for good in his sock drawer. The album was recorded shortly after leaving Oasis in 2009, as he worked with experimental production duo Amorphous Androgynous on what would have been his debut solo record.

Only one track ever made it to the open public with "Shoot a Hole Into the Sun" being released as a B-side to his single for "Dream On".

He said - "I did find a copy of it recently in a sock draw. The masters (tapes), somebody has them, the masters have not been destroyed – but it won’t be coming out any time soon. It might be nice to go back and revisit it in years to come, because Shoot a Hole into the Sun is f**king great and there might be more stuff like that in there. Best to give it a bit of distance though I think, just wasn’t right for the time.

He went on to say - "There’s no bootleg because I own the master and I destroyed it. My manager’s not even heard it. I wouldn’t play it. It was so underwhelming to me that I never played it to anybody."
