Oasis Begin Recording New Album At Abbey Road

Noel Gallagher has revealed that Oasis have begun recording their seventh studio album at the Abbey Road studios in London.

The guitarist said that the band laid down a couple of tracks six weeks ago before the birth of his child– who he hailed as "the future of British Music."

"We start back in Abbey Road a week on Monday (November 5th), if anyone's interested, and then we'll probably work through a couple of months there, have Christmas off, then go and mix it and see where we're at," he said.

Gallagher told the BBC that the band have been writing separately, "but for some reason all the songs sound like they've got a common thread."

He continued: "We've been focusing round the grooves more this time, the last album was quite 'songy,' if that makes any sense, I don't know.

"But it was quite 'songy:' Importance of Being Idle, Let There Be Love - it was quite a British, retro, 60s sounding album. This is kinda focusing round the grooves more."

When asked about the new records lyrical inspiration, Gallagher admitted that he's "literally got nothing left to write about."

He explained: "I've wrote about being a youth, and I've wrote about being a rock star, and I've wrote about living life in the big city.

"I've been re-visiting some of my more psychedelic trips of a younger man, because I remember them all you see...putting them to music."
