Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' new album
The band, who formed in 2010 after Oasis' acrimonious break-up, will release their long-awaited fourth studio album Council Skies on 2 June.
The 10-track album, their first since 2017, has been preceded by the release of three singles: Pretty Boy (featuring The Smiths' Johnny Marr), Easy Now and Dead to the World.

Gallagher, 55, described Dead to the World, an emotional, acoustic-driven ballad, as his favourite track on the album "by some distance".
He said: "It has this film noir vibe. It's not like anything else I've ever done before. It's very melancholic, but I like that.
"I'm a Gemini – I'm as up as I am down, and the trick is to meet somewhere in the middle and turn that into music."
The deluxe edition of the LP features 14 bonus tracks, including covers of John Lennon's classic track Mind Games and Bob Dylan's You Ain't Goin' Nowhere.
