Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have revealed new single ‘Flying On The Ground’ and accompaying music video.
The track is the second of two new singles to feature on the forthcoming album of ‘Back The Way We Came: Vol 1 (2011-2021)’, due out on 11 June 2021. The release will be an 18-track best of compilation and timely reminder of the band’s first decade of music.
Discussing the new track Noel commented, “Flying On The Ground is literally the best thing I’ve released since the last thing I released. If Burt Bacharach wrote for Motown this is what it would sound like … only not as good … obviously.”
The official video is a companion piece to current single ‘We’re On Our Way Now’.
The French New Wave cinema inspired visuals are directed by Dan Cadan & Jonathan Mowatt for Rankin and star actors Matt Smith and Gala Gordon.
