Legendary artist Noel Gallagher has been confirmed as the headliner for Bingley Music Live 2018.
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will be topping the bill at Myrtle Park after a hugely successful 2017 which saw their critically acclaimed album ‘Who Built The Moon’ reach number 1 in the album charts.
Released in November 2017 via Sour Mash Records, ‘Who Built The Moon’ is the third album from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. The record debuted at Number 1, receiving gold certification in less than two weeks post-release. The success came as no surprise to the global music community with ‘Who Built The Moon’ completing a hat-trick of number one solo records since 2011, as well as marking a record-breaking tenth consecutive chart-topping studio album for Noel Gallagher.
‘Who Built The Moon’ is celebrated as an innovation of Gallagher’s sound, seeing him experiment with ‘glam, psychedelia and candid pop’ pushing boundaries whilst retaining the world-class song-writing majesty that made him famous. The hypnotic ‘It’s A Beautiful World’, the second single taken from the album features ambient electronica from the acclaimed producer, DJ and composer David Holmes, and a French spoken word segment inspired by Gallic art house cinema. Noel’s sonic exploration has taken him further in 2018 with the announcement of a special remix collection of latest single ‘It’s A Beautiful World’ which will be released exclusively for Record Store Day 2018 on Saturday 21st April.
Further to acclaimed remixes on previous Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds records, Andrew Weatherall provides a vocal mix and darker dub on the A-side. On the B-side, legendary Hacienda residents Mike Pickering and Graeme Park join forces to provide a mix which harks back to the heyday of the legendary Manchester nightclub. This is the first remix the duo have made together in over 25 years.
Fans of Noel Gallagher’s previous works will be pleased to hear that, as well as a wealth of new material and Highflying Birds, hits such as ‘In The Heat Of The Moment’ and ‘The Dying Of The Light’, Noel’s set at Bingley Music Live 2018 will include a number of Oasis classics.
