Noel Gallagher is moving away from his Oasis roots with the new album 'Who Built the Moon?' with his High Flying Birds. After agreeing to work with producer David Holmes, he was instructed not to bring any pre-written songs to the sessions but instead listen to music, drink and be inspired. SOUNDBITE musician, Noel Gallagher, saying (English): "You know every time it started to sound a bit like Oasis, he would stop me what I was doing and say 'You've done all that before. Try something different.' Gallagher admits that changing his creative process has also changed who he is. SOUNDBITE musician, Noel Gallagher, saying (English): "I am now slightly more arrogant than I was because I thought I could work one way and I was really good at that and now I know I can go into the studio and someone could just look at me and say 'Well come on, what have you got?'" Although Noel says he's moving away from Oasis, he's still very proud of his achievements with the band. SOUNDBITE musician, Noel Gallagher, saying (English): "I wrote them, I produced them, I came up with all the parts so I know what they all mean and there is nothing to cope with. Nobody does it better than I do. It's fucking simple as that." So no regrets, then, Noel? SOUNDBITE musician, Noel Gallagher, saying (English): "As fucking preposterous as this seems - I've never even been nominated for a Grammy ever, but that's out of my hands. I've never had a number one album in the States but that's out my hands No regrets. You can't have any. They're useless anyway. They drive you mad." "Who Built the Moon?" by Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds in out on November 24.
