Speaking to Italy's Radio Cita Futtura, Noel Gallagher has said he is going to go to work on his new album very soon. The former Oasis man put out his sophomore LP, Chasing Yesterday, in March and already has a follow-up he wants to do. He said, "I'll enter the studio for my new album in about five weeks. I'll do some work on it before the end of the year. I’m hoping to get it finished by the end of the year.
