Noel Gallagher has been speaking about his new album 'Chasing Yesterday' that is released on March 2..
In an interview with the Manchester Evening News he said "The last record was very cinematic and choral, and this is a little bit darker.," he says.
“If the last record was a very expensive film with a strong narrative from start to finish, like a really brilliant movie, this is a collection of songs and like a brilliant TV series.
“Like Match of the Day,” Noel laughs. “Match of the Day 2, as a matter of fact.”
He added “There were big gaps in the record before where that saxophone ended up,” Noel laughs. “I just had the idea one day, ‘What about a saxophone?’, and the guy came down one day and played it and that was it.”
When questioned What would 1994 Noel think of it? he replied “Initially he would have resisted it. But I would have convinced him within quarter of an hour. I’d have said, ‘******* hell mate, don’t be a square. Get a ******* saxophone in, you daft ****’.”
An extended interview with Noel is in the latest edition of CityLife, inside Friday's M.E.N.
