Noel Gallagher - The Death Of You And Me"The Death Of You And Me" will be the first single from ex-Oasis' songwriter/guitarist Noel Gallagher's debut solo record and will be available August 21. 

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds will be released Oct. 17, the first of two solo LPs Gallagher has in the pipeline. The second, a collaboration with Amorphous Androgynous, will be released next year.

According to Gallagher, High Flying Birds are not his new band.

"My manager asked me who the High Flying Birds are," he said last week at a press conference. "They aren't anyone in particular. Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds is me and whoever is around at the time of whatever it is that I'm doing, a loose collective kinda thing."

A YouTube trailer has been released, previewing "The Death Of You And Me" and the single will be released digitally as well as on CD and 7" vinyl through Gallagher's own Sour Mash label.

Gallagher fans know many of his finest songs were Oasis' B-sides. The B-side for "The Death Of You And Me" is entitled "The Good Rebel."

The wait is almost over. We'll get to hear two brand new Noel Gallagher songs in August with the record in October. The tour for the first record will kick off later this year in Dublin with other dates soon to follow. The press release for the single indicates more news is expected in the coming days, tour dates perhaps among them.

The single will be released on the following formats:

CD Single / 7"
01. The Death Of You And Me
02. The Good Rebel

Digital Bundle
01. The Death Of You And Me
02. The Good Rebel
03. The Death Of You And Me (Video)
