Noel Gallagher wishes his new album 'Chasing Yesterday' had a different title but all his ideas were deemed to be no good

Noel Gallagher wishes his new album had a different title.

The 'Everybody's on the Run' singer has announced the release of 'Chasing Yesterday' in March 2015 and admits he struggled to come up with a name for the record as all his ideas were "f***ing s**t".

He said: "Effectively it doesn't really have a title, I couldn't really come up with a title for it and every time I did somebody would say to me that's f****ing s**t. I literally came up with it last week but it'll have to do for now, if I could change it I would change it."

And the former Oasis rocker admits he always hates coming up with album titles and would rather fans made their own names up for his records.

Speaking during a Q and A session streamed live on Facebook, he said: "If I could stick an album out with a plain white sticker on it and say "Call it what you want" I would."

Noel - who will release new single, 'In the Heat of the Moment' next month - admits working titles for the album paid tribute to Pink Floyd and The Smiths' classic albums 'Dark Side of the Moon' and 'Meat is Murder'.

Asked about the record's working titles, he said: "'Dark Side of The Room', 'Wheat is Murder'. Look a title is a title it's really about the tunes at the end of the day."

Meanwhile, the singer also admitted one track on the album, 'Lock All the Doors' has taken 23 years to complete.

He said: "I always meant to finish it off, I kept the chorus but I could never find a way of getting the verses and chorus to tie up. One day I was coming out of Tesco Metro in Maida Vale, where I live, and it just came to me. The song is from 1993 but the chorus was so f***ing brilliant I never forgot it."
