In 2011, following the release of his solo debut, Noel Gallagher was supposed to release a record with Amorphous Androgynous, yet, the record never saw the light of day and Gallagher now confirms to NME that it never will. He said, "Initially when they delivered it they managed to pull off the trick of recording the quietest CD of all time. When I got it I couldn't hear it and was like, 'Is it broke?' But for all the great ideas on it… I was in the middle of a tour, that last album had blown up, the mixes weren't right. And by the time I got back off tour I was just like, 'I'm not fucking putting out another record, I can't be arsed'. I was frazzled and had glandular fever. I was fucked."
