Noel Gallagher's uninspired album

Noel Gallagher struggled to name the new Oasis album.

The guitarist admits the title for the band's upcoming LP 'Dig Out Your Soul' was chosen because the group couldn't think of anything else.

He told Britain's Radio 1: "I couldn't think of any ideas and then somebody had just taken bits of the lyrics out and 'Dig Out Your Soul' was what came up.

"'Dig Out Your Soul' is not the best one but it was the best title on a day when we had to choose one. Originally it was going to be called 'Bag It Up' and then it was going to be called 'Shock of the Lightning' and then it was going to be called 'Standing On The Edge Of The Noise'."

Noel - who plays drums on several tracks on the album - insists the title will sound better if people like the new songs.

He said: "I was like, 'You know what? Titles become themselves.'

"'Definitely Maybe' isn't a great title but if the album is good enough it'll become itself."

'Dig Out Your Soul' - which Noel claims is a reference to soul music - is released on October 6.
