Speaking about his debut record - which is set for release on 6 October - the Rock 'N' Roll Star also revealed he refused to include the saxophone on his new LP because it sounded "pervy".
Asked if the instrument almost made it onto the album, the Oasis man told Moyles: “They said ‘It won’t sound like a saxophone - we’ll put it through a pedal and then it will fucking sound like a guitar’. I was like, ‘I ain’t nine mate, and you can’t fucking pull that one over.’
“I was like, ‘Well, there’s a guitar there that can fucking sound like a guitar’, I said: ‘Get your sax, put the fucking saxophone away and get your mellotrons out’.
He concluded: “Fuck that shit, it’s fucking Bryan Ferry, it’s creepy. Saxes are creepy, man. They’re like fucking pervy and shit, you know what I mean?”
