“Flying On The Ground is literally the best thing I’ve released since the last thing I released,” Noel Gallagher says. “If Burt Bacharach wrote for Motown this is what it would sound like…only not as good…obviously.”

Noel Gallagher has released the second brand new track which will be a part of his High Flying Birds best of collection Back The Way We Came: Vol 1.

Following on from We’re On Our Way Now, Flying On The Ground is another produced by Gallagher with his long-time confidant Paul ‘Strangeboy’ Stacey, and leaves fans just waiting for the demo version of International Magic.

Aside from those three previously unheard songs, the tracklist takes a neat chronological path through Gallagher’s post-Oasis decade, starting with some of the bigger hits from his 2011 self-titled debut, on to the less familiar leanings of last year’s run of EPs.
