Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds go disco with new track Black Star Dancing

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have just released a new single, Black Star Dancing, the title track off their upcoming EP,  which is set to be released June 14th.

Black Star Dancing can only be described as a ’70s inspired disco track. It consists mostly of electronic sounds, setting it apart from the band’s previous 2017 album Who Built the Moonwhich leant towards a psych rock feel.

Noel Gallagher has just released Black Star Dancing, a track inspired by David Bowie, INXS, U2, Queen and ZZ Top.

The track combines upbeat, synth driven pads and darker bass undertones to create a piece that screams disco. It even comes with a 12″ mix on the forthcoming Black Star Dancing EP, so you can bet old Noel is pining to hear his new tune in the clubs.

In a press release, Gallagher describes the track as follows:

“It manages to combine the influences of David Bowie, INXS, U2, Queen, Indeep AND ZZ Top FFS!…. I might have been watching too much “Top Of The Pops” recently… anyway, it’s “dope”… not my words, but the words of Nile Rodgers who literally danced in the studio when he heard it!”

The track spans a total of four minutes 22 seconds and gives a little insight into what to expect from their upcoming EP. If it got the man who wrote Le Freak moving, count us in.
