Noel Gallagher 'really ahead' with next album

Noel Gallagher is "really ahead" with his next album.

The 48-year-old rocker only released his band Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' second LP 'Chasing Yesterday' nine months ago but he hasn't got time to sit back and admire its success as he's admitted he has already started penning tracks for the follow-up collection.

He said: "I'm really ahead with the next album. It's really f***ing annoying me at the minute because I've got this tune that I can't get out of my head."

And it seems one instrument that's already worked its way onto the next album is the saxophone, which was used on the second collection, much to the frontman's annoyance.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, he explained: "I'm writing songs at the minute and I keep hearing saxophones everywhere. The only thing that's bugging me now is that I may never get rid of them."

Meanwhile, although he's remaining tight-lipped on the details surrounding the new album, Noel recently sparked speculation he is working with Jamie xx on some tracks.

After saying he's collaborating with a "mystery producer", he was questioned on whether it was the 26-year-old DJ, to which he replied: "Did you just say Jamie xx? Yeah, well, no comment. I can tell you it's not f**king Timbaland, or Jay Z."
