The Shock Of The Lightning’ new single out September 29th
‘Dig Out Your Soul’ new album out October 6th
Oasis are set to return later this year with a new single and their seventh studio album. The single,‘The Shock Of The Lightning’ is released on September 29th and the album, ‘Dig Out Your Soul’ follows in October; it is the first new Oasis music since last year’s ‘Lord Don’t Slow Me Down’, taken from the on the road film of the same name. ‘Dig Out Your Soul’ sees Dave Sardy return to the producer’s chair following his work on their 2005 album, ‘Don’t Believe The Truth’. Recorded at Abbey Road and mixed in Los Angeles, all four members once again contribute tracks, but the recording marks a new approach for the band as described by the band’s principle songwriter, Noel:
“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.
‘The Shock Of The Lightning’ may well represent the most recognisable Oasis song on the album but, again, the new approach on ‘Dig Out Your Soul’ was present on this lead track as Noel explains:
“If ‘The Shock Of The Lightning’ sounds instant and compelling to you, it’s because it was written dead fast. And recorded dead fast. ‘The Shock of The Lightning’ basically is the demo. And it has retained its energy. And there’s a lot to be said for that, I think. The first time you record something is always the best.”
‘Dig Out Your Soul’ will be the first album released on the band’s own Big Brother label worldwide.

Oasis and Blur are rumoured to be indulging in their old Britpop rivalry once more by competing on BBC game show 'The Weakest Link'.
According to Daily Star, telly chiefs are in talks with the old rivals: Noel Gallagher, Liam Gallagher, Damon Albarn and Alex James.
And the show is keen to draft in a whole host of Britpop musicians, including the likes of Suede’s Brett Anderson, Elastica’s Justine Frischmann, Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker and Manic Street Preachers frontman James Dean Bradfield.
A BBC source said the show was in the early planning stages, but added: "If we can pull this off it would be unbelievable."
He added, "Noel admits he’s a ’Weakest Link’ fan."
Sounds too good to be true? Naturally it seems it is...
"Despite today's press reports to the contrary, Blur are not in discussion with the BBC to 'indulge their old rivalry' by appearing on 'The Weakest Link' with Oasis," the band's management told NME.COM. "Don't believe it."
Perhaps they got wind of Oasis' voting strategy to get Damon out first round...

Oasis star Noel Gallagher is the coolest bloke in Britain, according to a survey of young men.
The singer may have celebrated his 40th birthday this year, but he was voted way ahead of young pretenders such as Arctic Monkey Alex Turner.
Footballer Steven Gerrard was second in the 100 Coolest British Men of 2007 list compiled by Zoo magazine. Doctor Who's David Tennant was third - deemed to be cooler than current James Bond Daniel Craig, who was fourth.
David Beckham was fifth and Formula One star Lewis Hamilton sixth. Comedians Simon Pegg and Ricky Gervais were ranked seventh and eighth respectively, followed by boxer Joe Calzaghe.
Arctic Monkeys frontman Turner brought up the rear in 10th place.
While Noel headed the list, his younger brother Liam scraped in at 22.
Zoo editor Ben Todd said: "These inaugural awards have revealed some quite surprising results with Noel Gallagher, who has acquired something of an 'elder statesman' role, topping the poll.
"It shows that he is someone young people today strive to be like - perhaps even more so than when Oasis dominated the charts a decade ago."
The list contained a handful of older stars, including Sir Paul McCartney at 55 and Sir Mick Jagger at 73. Elsewhere, Prince Harry made it to 37, although there was no place for his brother Liam. Simon Cowell was a late entrant at 98.
