Ex-Oasis honcho Noel Gallagher will release his first solo effort in three years this October.

Recording with his High Flying Birds, the first single – The Death of You and Me, is available digitally and as a CD and vinyl single now.

Gallagher explained exactly who his new posse are:

“My manager asked me who the High Flying Birds are. They aren’t anyone in particular. Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds is me and whoever is around at the time of whatever it is that I’m doing, a loose collective kinda thing.”

The 44 year old songwriter is feeling pretty confident about the upcoming release, boasting in true Mancunian fashion:

“The record’s great, it’s the best I could have done, you know, with what little talent I have, and I think people are going to like it, there’s something on there for everybody, apart from heavy metal fans, I think people will like it.”

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will be released on October 17th
