Noel Gallagher announced his second solo LP Chasing Yesterday will release March 2nd next year and announced the release of the first single "In The Heat Of The Moment," which releases next month (Nov. 17).
Gallagher said the record has been done for nearly three months in a Facebook Q&A with selected fans and media, begging the obvious, maddening, homicide-inspiring question WHY IS THE RELEASE OF THE FUCKING RECORD 6 MONTHS AWAY? Damn it, man!
At least we have the first single to listen to (more on that to follow). Hell, we even know what the second single is from the Q&A this morning: the album's final track "Ballad Of The Mighty I" featuring Johnny Marr on guest guitar.
So, we know the first two singles and release date for the album and first single. We know the complete tracklisting and have cover art for the record. The album will be sold as a standard single CD as well as a deluxe edition featuring four additional tracks. Guess what, kids? We are getting a studio version of "Freaky Teeth!" I know! Shut your mouth and keep on talking, right? Take my money. I'm having a deluxe edition and you should, too.
What else do we know? A song that was bootlegged from a soundcheck and misnamed "Makes Me Wanna Cry" is on the record under its proper title "The Dying Of The Light." The version on YouTube is acoustic while the album version is a fuller arrangement.
Here is the tracklisting for Chasing Yesterday and its bonus disc. I may not want to live forever but I can say I'm officially hoping to make it into March 2015. We have a six-month wait but I'll go ahead and start getting excited now.
