Imelda May has said that Noel Gallagher’s “sexy voice” elevated her new track ‘Just One Kiss’. 

The Irish singer collaborated with her long-time friends, former Oasis musician Noel Gallagher and Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, on her upcoming LP ‘11 Past The Hour.’

Imelda was full of praise for the ‘Wonderwall’ singer and shared that he was perfect for her latest track.

She said: “I was wanting to ask Noel to sing with me on this song because I just thought he would be brilliant. I love his voice. I love his vibe.”

Imelda continued to gush over her friend: “‘Just One Kiss’ is about lustful love, so I knew his raspy voice would work.

“It needed a sexy voice to add to the sexy vibe on that song. I know he’s brilliant, so I was delighted he said yes.

“Noel is always creating something, I’m a fan, I love his work,” she added.

“He doesn’t stop, he has an incredible work ethic, I expect to keep continuously having music from Noel, I can’t imagine he’ll stop, I’m always thrilled with whatever he puts out.

“He’s just cool as f**k, he’s just fab, and so so genuine.”

Imelda also mentioned that Noel’s mother Peggy, who is originally from Mayo, did a good job of raising him and his brother Liam.

“Noel is just one of the coolest guys ever, but he is so lovely as well, so nice, but he is an Irish boy so why wouldn’t he be? His mum Peggy has raised them well,” she said.

The ‘Should’ve Been You’ singer also applauded Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, who features on Imelda’s upcoming album.

“When Ronnie played that solo in the studio the whole place just stopped it was like ‘oh my god!’ He just has such a sound of his own, it blew everyone away, he’s so cool.”

‘11 Past The Hour’ will be released on April 23.
