download 'aka…what a life!' from noel gallagher


Noel Gallagher‘s solo debut, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, keeps looking better and better. Previous single “The Death Of You And Me” and its b-side, “The Good Rebel,” were promising — if on the expected side. Now Noel has announced the second single, “AKA…What A Life!”

It’ll be released digitally next week and on CD and vinyl 7″ with new b-side “Let The Lord Shine A Light On Me” on October 17th. The track is a welcome departure from tried and true britpop and tips the scales ever so slightly toward Noel’s collaborations with the Chemical Brothers, “Setting Sun” and “Let Forever Be.”
