It looks like we’ll have to wait a little bit longer for that inevitable Oasis reunion to materialize. Your boy Noel Gallagher remains busy with his High Flying Birds side project. He’s just announced a new EP called Black Star Dancing, which follows up the 2017 album Who Built The Moon? The new EP will be out next month, and it’ll feature three new songs and a couple of remixes. Along with that announcement, Gallagher has shared the title track, which suggests a bit of a new direction for him.
“Black Star Dancing,” it pains me to say, is not about boogieing to Mos Def and Talib Kweli or, at least, not directly. (It’s also not about hitting the quan to David Bowie’s death-infused final album.) Instead, it’s an astral dance-rock thumper about more psychedelic concerns. The song’s house-music boom isn’t exactly a surprise; Gallagher did, after all, sing on the Chemical Brothers’ “Setting Sun” more than two decades ago. Still, it’s a song that instantly evokes the absolutely delightful image of Noel Gallagher in the club.
