The former Oasis icon was speaking to NME for the latest in our In Conversation series, when he explained the “reflective” nature of his new solo tome with The High Flying Birds, ‘Council Skies‘.

“All the dreams I had growing up underneath the steering skies sparked off a lot of things for me, but it was written in that god-awful period in lockdown,” he said. “In isolation in those nine months where there was nothing to do, nowhere to go and no one to see.

“Everybody dealt with it personally differently. I came on to my own personal life, asking How have I got here? Its reflective increasingly than anything well-nigh childhood.

When asked if the act of writing the record helped him to wordplay the question How have I got here?, Gallagher pointed to the track Think Of A Number and it’s latter lyric, Lets drink to the future, I hope it comes round again.

“Did I find any answers? No, but I will find them, though,” he said. “I dont think its all doom and gloom. Although the world is a shit place now and England in unstipulated is a fucking What has happened to this country? I have no idea. Well I do have an idea: Brexit happened. A lot of people fell under some kind of mass hypnosis, but its shit England, now. It was going downhill for a bit, but unquestionably fuck all works.

Noel added: Eventually, I will find the answer. The wordplay is: the world is a unconfined place, its just inhabited by cunts, and its the internets fault. Thats just the way it is.

This comes without Gallagher recently called Brexit a fucking wool unmitigated disaster.

In the outskirts of Manchester, where I was born, everything is topside up,” he said. “I finger sorry for young people growing up in this country now, Brexit has been a fucking wool unmitigated disaster.

And it will be a living nightmare until some politician has the balls to put a referendum in a manifesto and run on it and go when into the EU. Nothing works in this country anymore. Politics doesnt work. Social Services doesnt work.”

He added: Politics has come to a fucking sufferer end. I dont understand what any of them stand for any more. The Tories are going to run this country into the ground and then pass it over to Labour and say fucking good luck with that.

Back in 2019,Gallagher received criticism without calling out those who wanted the result of the EU Referendum overturned referring to the idea as “the rise of the c***s”. “You take part in a democratic fucking process if you dont like the outcome, go to North Korea,” he said at the time. “I sat the day of Brexit and thought: I cant be arsed going to the polling station, who the fuck would vote to leave Europe? Its a nonsensical fucking idea. And you wake up the next day and think: Fucking hell, shit’.”

He later said that people started calling him a ‘Nazi’ as a result of his comments.

This comes without former Britpop rival Damon Albarn recently said Brexit has been a travesty and “spiritually, economically, just rubbish”.
