Noel Gallagher‘s High Flying Birds recently dropped a new single, “Dead to the World,” along with an accompanying lyric video.
The song will feature on the band’s fourth studio album, Council Skies, which is set to drop on June 2 via Sour Mash Records.
In a statement, Gallagher confirmed that “Dead To The World” is “by some distance my favorite tune on the album. It has this film noir vibe. It’s not like anything else I’ve ever done before. It’s very melancholic, but I like that. I’m a Gemini – I’m as up as I am down, and the trick is to meet somewhere in the middle and turn that into music.”
The song also features string arrangements by longtime band collaborator Rosie Danvers.
“Rosie gets what I do,” Gallagher adds. “Spending a weekend recording strings in Abbey Road. that’s one of the great privileges in a musician’s life. It sounds majestic.”
Meanwhile, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have announced a tour in support of the album this summer. The North American dates will kick off on June 2 in Auburn, Washington, at White River Amphitheatre and conclude on July 15 with a show in Boston at MGM Music Hall at Fenway.
