The High Flying Birds man has also revealed he's going to "try and take 2020 off".
Liam Gallagher has hit out at his brother - again - after his sibling jokingly branded new Oasis fans "little pr**ks".
Noel has announced that aside from a new EP and a few live dates, he's going to take it easy in 2020.
He told Guitar.com: "I just need to get away from it for a bit. So I don't think I'll start to make an album seriously 'til 2021.
"The thing is, there's a generation now, between 15 and 18 years old, that have just got into the Oasis thing. They've never heard most of what I've done, that's for sure.
"But really, they have no idea what was going on before. So for those little pr**ks, I'll take great pleasure in ruining their days."
The comments outraged brother Liam, who tweeted: "For someone who honestly - and I mean HONESTLY - thinks he’s the Paul McCartney of his generation... is seriously deluded. Imagine Macca saying all new Beatle fans are pr**ks.
"Sorry rkid, you need more than a year off. You are an embarrassment to the family."

Meanwhile, Liam has told a follower on Twitter that he's "heard" his brother wants to meet up, He pondered: "Wonder what he wants... maybe he wants to apologise and beg me to let him start up Oasis again."

Noel has just wrapped up some tour dates in Australia supporting U2, while Liam has begun his own tour down under.
Noel explained: "Apart from the odd festival date next summer, I think I'm going to try to take 2020 off.
"Now, that being said, my missus may have something to say about that. Plus, I've got a load of songs, they've just got to be knocked into shape.
"On the way down to meet you I was working on them on my iPad, making another list. I have a list of things - 'I must do that' - but actually, once the Christmas EP is out of the way, I'm going to take a step back."
The next Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds EP will be Blue Moon Rising, due in March.
