NME gets the first look at artwork and tracklisting.
Oasis have revealed the tracklisting and artwork for their new album exclusively to NME. 'Dig Out Your Soul' will be released on October 6 and will feature 11 songs.
The album was produced by Dave Sardy, who also worked on their last album 'Don't Believe The Truth', and will feature 11 songs.
'Dig Out Your Soul' will open with 'Bag It Up' which Noel Gallagher recently revealed was almost the title track until his girlfriend pointed out Geri Halliwell has a song of the same name. We're assured it's not a cover.
Other songs set to feature include comeback single 'The Shock Of The Lightning' (out September 29), 'The Nature Of Reality', the intriguingly titled , (Get Off Your) High Horse Lady' and 'Ain't Got Nothin'. An early demo version of the latter leaked in May, though none of the songs which appeared in that batch have made the final album.
Oasis have given the NME the artwork for their seventh album, which was created by London-based designer Julian House - who also designed the award-winning sleeve for Primal Scream's 'XTRMNTR' - after he heard the music.
A collage featuring clocks, a mushroom cloud, apples and solders, it implies Noel Gallagher has fulfilled the mission statement he set out for 'Dig Out Your Soul'.
"I really fancy doing a record where we just completely throw the kitchen sink at it," Noel told NME in 2007 as plans for the album were hatched. "We haven't done that since 'Be Here Now'... get a 100-piece orchestra and choirs and all that. I think since 'Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants' we've been trying to prove a point of just bass, drums, guitar and vocals and nothing fancy.But I kind of fancy making an absolutely f**king colossal album.
