Oasis reveal new album title

Oasis' new album title: Dig Out Your Soul

Oasis has revealed that their seventh studio album will be called Dig Out Your Soul.

The much-anticipated album is out on 26 October, preceded by the single The Shock of the Lightning on 29 September.

It’s the first music offering the Mancunians have made since Don’t Believe the Truth in 2005 – and it’s set to be a new sound for the boys.

The band’s brains, Noel Gallagher, said he took the songwriting in a different direction this time.

He told The Sun: ‘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.’

The first single is the most traditionally Oasis-sounding track in the collection.

And Noel said: ‘It was written dead fast and recorded dead fast.

‘The Shock Of The Lightning basically is the demo. And it has retained its energy.

‘There’s a lot to be said for that, I think. The first time you record something is always the best.’
