Noel Gallagher's new album may be called 'Chasing Yesterday' but it is "not reflective"

Noel Gallagher's new album is "not reflective".

The 47-year-old rocker - who was a member of Oasis until his departure in 2009 caused their split - will release his "space jazz" and "disco" LP 'Chasing Yesterday' in March and despite an apparently nostalgia-yearning title, he insists the record is not a look at his past.

Speaking about the title, he said: "It kind of fits the record. The songs are directed at two people, in a narrative sense - boy, girl, girl, boy. So it's not me looking back. It's not a reflective album at all."

The 'Don't Look Back in Anger' singer has produced the album for the first time and admits he enjoyed the experience because he could make choices he would otherwise have been advised not to.

He explained to Q magazine: "I just thought, 'F**k it, this time I haven't got a producer telling me what to do', So I left three big songs off that other bands would probably say, 'What the f**k has he done that for?' I did it deliberately to make way for these songs that were a bit more left-field."
