The former Oasis has revealed some of his new tracks sound “Bowie-esque” and Stones-y and he imitated the music icons to try and get the songs completed.

According to the Daily Star newspaper's Wired column, Gallagher explained: “To get the song out of myself, like on Pretty Boy, it’s like, this sounds like Bowie.

"I’d sit up late at night doing the voice, [thinking] ‘If this song sounds like David Bowie, then I’m going to sing it like David Bowie until I’ve written it’.”

When Noel isn't writing new music, he's busy supporting his beloved Manchester City. However, things took an unlikely turn when he was celebrating their Premier League title win at the weekend.

Speaking to TalkSPORT the morning after the Man City Aston Villa gane, he revealed the “absolute bedlam,” which broke out when German midfielder Ilkay Gündoğan scored the winning goal.

“As the third goal goes in, right, there is absolute bedlam," recalled the Holy Mountain singer. "As you can imagine, in the stadium where we sit, Rúben Dias’s family are in the box, a couple of boxes up.

"So I’m jumping around like an idiot, passing my 11-year-old son around like the Premier League trophy, everyone is lifting him up, and I turn around and Rúben Dias’ dad runs straight into me – headbutts me while I’m on the floor covered in blood.”
