“Lock All The Doors perfectly recaptures the brutish, overdriven thrill of early Oasis” – NME
“Lock All the Doors grinds fiercely” – Evening Standard
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will release ‘Lock All the Doors’ on August 28th. The track is the fourth single to be released from the hugely successful No 1 album ‘Chasing Yesterday’.
‘Lock All The Doors’ has been in the making for 23 years, Noel said:
“There’s a song on this record that’s taken me 23 years to finish – it’s called ‘Lock All The Doors’. I gave a bit of it away to The Chemical Brothers in the ’90s when we did ‘Setting Sun’ and I always meant to finish it off. I kept the chorus but I could never find a way of getting the verse to tie in with this chorus. One afternoon I was coming out the Tesco Metro where I live in Maida Vale, and I don’t know what it was but it just hit me, coming round the corner, just by Boots, it came to me in a flash of inspiration. This song was never released by Oasis, but the chorus is so fucking brilliant I never gave up on it.”
‘Chasing Yesterday’ went straight to Number One in the Official UK Album Chart after its March 2nd release – and remains the highest selling album in its first week on sale so far this year.
‘Lock All The Doors’ includes B-side ‘Here’s A Candle (For Your Birthday Cake)’ and will be released digitally and on 7″, with a limited edition coloured vinyl available exclusively via www.noelgallagher.com
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds are currently on an extensive world tour and have recently returned to the UK for headline festival appearances at Clapham Calling, Summer In the City in Manchester, and T in the Park with Latitude to follow this weekend (July 19).
