How Many Special People Change?

Oasis has announced details of a new single and album. The Shock of the Lightning single is due out Sept 29 while the full-length Dig Out Your Soul is due in stores Oct 6. Those are probably UK dates - the day after is when the US version would likely be released.

“I wanted to write music that had a groove; not songs that followed that traditional pattern of verse, chorus and middle eight. I wanted a sound that was more hypnotic; more driving. Songs that would draw you in, in a different way. Songs that you would maybe have to connect to - to feel.”

The lead single is still unmistakably Oasis, a Noel penned song with Liam’s immediately familiar voice to the fore underlining their distinctive brand of finger in the socket rock ’n’ roll.
I think they say something like that with every new release. Somehow, this is only their 7th album. Sure feels like they've been around much longer. Nonetheless, I'll always look forward to a new Oasis album. You never know ... they may properly follow up (What's the Story) Morning Glory with a worthy album.
