Noel Gallagher says Black And White Sunshine is 'one of the best things I ever did'

Noel Gallagher says writing a song about love was "one of the best things" he has ever done.

He said there was nothing more "joyous" than being in love as he described one of his tracks, Black And White Sunshine, on his new album Who Built The Moon? which is due to be released in November.

His band, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, are taking the record on tour next year, almost three years since his last offering, Chasing Yesterday, released in 2015.

Speaking of his work on the track with producer and composer David Holmes, before its release on record label Sour Mash, the former Oasis star said: "David played me the sample, so I worked out the chords and we demoed just a few short minutes of it, taking it away on tour and playing with it.

"When it became a song back in Belfast it was so joyous, I just had to do it justice. What's more joyous than being in love, baby?

"So, I wrote a song about love and it's one of the best things that I've ever done."

Gallagher, 50, has been working on the album for two years and admitted there were moments when working in collaboration tested his patience.

Looking back on the process of creating the track, The Man Who Built The Moon, he said: "When we got to the chorus, David kept asking me to write a new one ... again and again and again.

"I was ready to strangle him. The one that you hear is the eighth attempt and, you know what? The annoying thing is he was right."
