Noel Gallagher says his new album 'Chasing Yesterday' is very eclectic and includes everything from "space jazz" to disco

Noel Gallagher's new album is a mixture of "space jazz" and "disco".

The 'AKA...What A Life!' hitmaker has been working on a "sister project" with electronic duo Amorphous Androgynous and claims he's incorporated their "space jazz" style into his own new album 'Chasing Yesterday'.

He said: "Space Jazz? I've gone there. There's more than a couple of sax solos on the record on the record. I could play you two of those tracks with saxophones and you'd go, 'Wow, it's like a f***ing space jazz record!'

"Then I could pick two other tracks that've got a disco feel, and you'd think it was that. But then there's rockers on there, and emotional songs that you would associate with me. It's very eclectic."

Noel, 47, has also reworked two of Amorphous Androgynous' tracks for his LP and claims they're unlike anything people will have heard from him before, especially his songs with Oasis.

He explained to Q magazine: "There's one called 'The Right Stuff', which is very out-there. When you hear it, you'll think, 'It's probably as far removed from 'Supersonic' as you could possibly get."
