The Oasis songsmith's follow-up to his Who Built The Moon? album is on its way. Find out what we know about its release date, sound, lyrics and more.
The former Oasis rocker also revealed the song will not feature on his next studio studio album, but will in fact be the title track from his forthcoming EP.

Not only that, but as he revealed Radio X's Johnny Vaughan this week, rather than releasing a whole album, the Holy Mountain singer will follow up Black Star Dancing with two more mini-albums, which will be released between now and December.

Find out everything else we know about Noel Gallagher's new music, which follows his previous albums Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds (2011), Chasing Yesterday (2015) and Who Built The Moon? (2017).
When was it recorded?
Speaking to the Daily Star last year, Gallagher revealed: "I’m due in the studio in January..."
When will it be released?
Noel Gallagher's Black Star Dancing EP is set for release on 14 June 2019.
It will then be followed by two more four-track EPs, which will be released between now and Christmas.
“I’ve got three EPs coming out this year - three four-track EPs,” he told Radio X’s Johnny Vaughan.
Who will produce them?
As revealed to the Daily Star and various other outlets, David Holmes - who worked with Noel on his last album - will return for production duties.
What will they sound like?
Back in February the Ballad of The Mighty I singer also told NME his music sounds like "if The Police and The Cure" were in the same band.
At his recent book Q&A in October, he teased further details, telling the crowds it had a "70s disco" feel.
Now, speaking to Radio X, Gallagher has revealed that the second EP will be “a very Mancunian-sounding record”.
He added: “I can see guys in anoraks, nodding their heads moodily to it, while checking out each other’s Adidas trainers, [saying] ‘Where you got those from?'"
What are they called?
The first EP is called Black Star Dancing, but there's no word yet on the title of the two EPs which will follow.
