Noel Gallagher insists his new solo album will appeal to ''everybody'' - apart from heavy metal fans

Noel Gallagher has boasted everyone will like his solo album "apart from heavy metal fans".

The former Oasis guitarist is gearing up for the release of his record 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' in October and he believes it will be popular with almost all music fans because there are so many "memorable tunes".

He said: "The record's great, it's the best I could have done, you know, with what little talent I have, and I think people are going to like it, there's something on there for everybody, apart from heavy metal fans, I think people will like it. You know, the track that's out there at the minute, 'The Death of You and Me', is not like the next track, that's going to be before the record, which is not like the third single.  It's all quite varied, but they're all very memorable tunes, I've got to say."

Although Noel is very confident people are going to like his LP, he admits he is nervous about going on tour for the first time without his brother Liam, who was the frontman in Oasis.

The 44-year-old musician - who quit the 'Roll With It' group after a fight with his sibling in August 2009 - said: "The material's already done so there's no pressure there, and I didn't put any pressure on myself in the studio. The pressure will come when I've got to play live, because I was in one of the greatest live bands, you know, and to try and recreate that with four or five different people is going to be a challenge, to say the least, not only for me but for the people that come and see us I guess."
