Noel Gallagher has shared how his new single A Dream Is All You Need To Get By is inspired by The Smiths.

The musician is getting ready to release the next track from his This Is The Place EP by his band Noel Gallaghers High Flying Birds and hes explained how the song is intended to sound like one of the many iconic B-sides by the Manchester band. Hes being a bit humble about it though, admitting that it would never be as good as the original music by Morrissey and co.

The former Oasis guitarist shared: To my ears it sounds like one of those iconic B-sides by The Smiths, only obviously not as good.

A song that was born very quickly which is always a good sign … like its always existed … somewhere … Manchester probably.



Its not the first time the band have proved inspiration for his music either. Previously, the Wonderwall hitmaker previously revealed track Riverman, from his second solo LP Chasing Yesterday, was inspired by Morrissey playing him Pinball by Brian Protheroe on a drunken night out with comedian Russell Brand in Los Angeles.

Noel – who is still, of course, caught up in a lengthy, ongoing feud of sorts with his brother Liam – has recorded three new songs for the EP, as well as two remixes, and its due to drop next week (September 27).
