Noel Gallagher has hinted that David Bowie will release a new album as he has plenty of leftover tracks from recording sessions for 'The Next Day'

David Bowie will release another album, according to Noel Gallagher.

The legendary musician - who released his latest studio album, 'The Next Day' in March - has enough unheard material from recording sessions for the album to put out another record, and will likely release a follow-up offering.

In an interview with Absolute Radio for Bowie-themed radio show 'Bowie Part 3 - Let's Dance to The Next Day (1980-2013)' yesterday (21.04.13), the High Flying Birds frontman said: "According to people I've spoken to, there's another album in the pipeline. There was, like, 29 songs or something."

The former Oasis singer admits he's unsure when the proposed record might be released, however.

He added: "I don't know what's next for Bowie. He could disappear for another ten years or there could be another album. He might do the greatest tour of all time or he might never gig again. Who knows?"

Noel, 44, also heaped praise on 'The Next Day', revealing that he was "staggered" by the quality of the album.

He said: "I've got to say I was properly staggered about how good [it] actually was. I don't believe for a second that he's thrown those songs together in two years. It sounds like a record that has been in the making for ten years. And if it is, I admire him even more. I genuinely put Bowie up there with some of the greatest there has ever been, with Elvis, John Lennon... he's in that league."

'The Next Day' marked Bowie's first studio album since 2003 and reached number one on the UK album chart earlier this year.
