Producer Mark Coyle Says Noel Gallagher's New Album Sounds Like Oasis' Definitely Maybe Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.26.2014
Producer Mark Coyle told NME that Noel Gallagher's new album is in the spirit of Oasis' debut album Definitely Maybe. Coyle co-produced that 1994 album. He said he has listened to demos for Gallagher's new album after recording sessions in New York.
He said: "Noel's new album is fucking great. It reminds me in some respects of the spirit of 'Definitely Maybe', because it's so obviously exciting. That boy is from a different planet, and even the fans won't believe how utterly amazing it is."
Coyle has been Gallagher's friend since they were on Inspiral Carpets' road crew in the early 1990s. He also said that Gallagher has written between fifty and sixty songs for the album.
He added: "He's not exactly struggling for an 11th song to complete the album. It's pouring out of him and he's currently whittling it all down into an album. The new record will be seismic. It's so explosive that, on the day it comes out, Virgin Trains won't be able to cope with all the people trying to flee the chaos."
Coyle spent six months going through demos and live recordings to the extra songs on this year's Special Edition of Definitely Maybe, which was announced today.
