It's news to him...
In an interview with Talksport Radio (via NME), Noel Gallagher has denied that he is collaborating with Damon Albarn on new material. The two ended a rivalry (which started between their bands Oasis and Blur) earlier this year when they performed together at the Royal Albert Hall in London for a Teenage Cancer Trust show. Albarn's bandmate Alex James said the two are "like best mates now" and added that they are "working together on a lot of stuff".
Gallagher however, denied it. He said: "I read that Alex James said that - [but] it's news to me!"
He also confirmed that he started work on a new High Flying Birds album. He added: "I've got tons of songs left over from the last one. I'm writing, putting stuff together. Yeah, I'll definitely make another one, that's for sure. I don't wanna go back out on the road, though - that's the thing."
He said that his last tour was fifteen months and he's not sure he wants to tour again any time soon. He said: "I only stopped touring last year. I wouldn't wanna go and see me once every two years - I've got no stage presence, there's nothing going on. I got into it though... yeah, I'll have to go on the road again."
Gallagher also denied that Oasis will reform next year for the 20th anniversary of their debut album Definitely Maybe. He said: "No, it definitely won't happen."
