Meanwhile, the former Oasis legend has revealed plans for a new record and a UK arena tour with his High Flying Birds.
Noel will play the O2 Arena in London, the Manchester Arena plus shows in Belfast, Nottingham and Glasgow in March 2015. Support will come from Black Rivers.
Tickets are on sale now.
The new album will be called Chasing Yesterday and is due for release on 2 March 2015. You can pre-order the record now. Noel also revealed that the first single to be taken from the album, In The Heat Of The Moment, will be released on 17 November.
As well as channeling his usual sound, the new record is said to use a wider instrumentation and be more experimental than anything Noel has done before. The record is also to feature Johnny Marr on the closing track The Balled Of Mighty I.
Speaking about the song, Noel said: "I tried to get him to play on the last album but it never happened. So when I put this track together and knew he would be perfect for it, I called him and asked if I could send him the rough mix. He said: ‘No, I don’t want to hear it. I’m just going to react to it on the day.’
"And I have to say, he’s unbelievable. He’s way up there, on another level to the rest of us. The result is a burst of energy that helped make Mighty I one of the best songs I’ve ever written."
See the album's tracklisting below.
