Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds Release 'Council Skies'

2nd June 2023

Council Skies has received widespread acclaim from media and fans alike and early album reviews have been unanimous in their praise.

Council Skies has been described as "his best post-Oasis album” by MOJO, “His most personal album in decades” by The Big Issue, "Noel hits his solo stride" by UNCUT and "some of the best songs of his post-Oasis career" by Rolling Stone UK. Record Collector awarded Council Skies their Album Of The Month, declaring "exactly the album Gallagher should be making to remind people how good he can be”.

A decade since the formation of the High Flying Birds, and having achieved four consecutive UK Number One albums, Council Skies, produced by Noel and Paul ‘Strangeboy’ Stacey, is the band’s fourth studio album and widely regarded as Noel’s most complete solo statement to date.

The release of Council Skies will kick start a huge live season for the band beginning with a 26 date USA tour, co-headlining with US alternative rockers Garbage which starts on Friday coinciding with album release. The band then return to the UK in July to play an array of UK outdoor shows and headline festival performances, including a massive homecoming gig at Manchester’s Wythenshawe Park on August Bank Holiday weekend. This is followed by a full UK arena tour throughout December 2023. Tickets are on sale here.

Council Skies is available to order now on CD, heavyweight vinyl with bonus 7”, LP picture disc plus various digital formats including a Dolby Atmos spatial audio version. The previously released Robert Smith remix of Pretty Boy is featured on deluxe limited- edition triple vinyl and 2CD formats which also include a stunning live session version of Live Forever and a remix from Pet Shop Boys. A printed handwritten lyric sheet of title track Council Skies will be included with all album pre-orders via the official store.
