The time has come, my children. We've basked in the glow of the glorious first video from Noel Gallagher's upcoming record and now we can all pre-order Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, street date October 17. As has become the norm, it's being offered in multiple packages. There aren't an overwhelming number of details about the specific packages being offered through Gallagher's web site but we'll cover what we know.
The album is being offered for preorder as a single disc set in the standard jewel case. It's also being offered as a digital download of the same. The digital download will come in the various and sundry lossy and lossless formats. Those who pre-order a physical copy of the album will have access to a digital download format of their choice on release date while they wait for their CD to arrive.
A CD/DVD edition of the record is also being offered. There aren't any specifics at the moment as to what the DVD will include. There's a decent likelihood the video to "The Death Of You And Me" will be there as well as some sort of featurette about the making of the record. That's unconfirmed speculation on my part but that's the type of thing most of these DVDs include and would be in keeping in line with what was offered on Oasis' Don't Believe The Truth and Dig Out Your Soul. Once again, fans who choose this option will have a digital download bundled with the set to tide them over while they wait for the full package.
The record will also be issued on vinyl, digital download included. If you want the CD, DVD, vinyl, and digital, that package will also be offered in a deluxe bundle.
Pre-orders for these are all being offered through NoelGallagher.com. I've pre-ordered mine. What are you lot waiting for? Get to bigger stepping'.
