NOEL Gallagher is releasing a new Oasis album after unearthing old songs.
The guitarist and singer, 52, revealed he was re-recording 14 tracks that failed to make it on to the band’s previous records.
But he is doing it without brother Liam, with whom he has been feuding since the group split in 2009.
Despite the bad blood between the siblings, Noel said he has an emotional connection with the tracks.
He added: “I’ve listed the proper songs and there were 14.
"They just fell by the wayside of various projects from down the years.
“I’m going to record them. Some are quite old school.
“I was looking at the track listing and thinking, ‘Actually, fing hell, no I’d approach that song differently’.
" It’s been very interesting.”
Liam, 47, has said he is open to a reunion — claiming the band was offered £100million to tour last February — although Noel has dismissed the idea.
As a group, they had eight No1 albums and picked up a string of major accolades, including six Brit Awards.
The group’s final studio album, Dig Out Your Soul, was released in 2008. Both Gallagher brothers continue to making music.
And Noel, who performs with his band the High Flying Birds, said he could not leave the Oasis tracks alone.
Speaking on the Matt Morgan podcast, he explained: “The gift is not coming up with the chords.
"The gift I’ve been given is remembering it all. If I play a song once and I’m not ped and it connects, it’s in there forever.

“That’s the gift, not the songwriting.
"If they’re good enough they’ll come back.”

THERE’S little I wouldn’t sell to see an Oasis reunion — family heirlooms, my children’s toys — it can all go if a comeback ticket comes up.
But sadly, even with green shoots of hope every now and again, we’re not there yet.
What’s clear is Noel and Liam quietly share the same nostalgic love for the band that made them superstars.
And there is a magic only sparked by the partnership of two gruff
Mancunian siblings — who love to hate each other — stood side by side.
We could really do with some of that at the moment.
