“10 years of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds?? Blimey!” Gallagher wrote on Twitter. “Just think of all the things I COULD have done in that time!!”

The Best Of collection, released June 11th, celebrates 10 years of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.

The tracklist for the 18-song album was curated by Gallagher, and features two new tracks written by Gallagher and Paul ‘Strangeboy’ Stacey, “We’re On Our Way Now” and “Flying On The Ground.”

“The title just came to me one afternoon, at the kitchen table,” the musician noted. ”It’s a saying isn’t it: ‘back the way we came’. I actually thought it was a great title. Which is why it’s got Vol 1. Because if there’s another one, I’m not coming up with another title!”

On BBC Radio 2, Gallagher also revealed that The Crown actor Matt Smith will appear in the upcoming music video for “We’re On Our Way Now.”

‘We are [good friends],” Gallagher told BBC host Zoe Ball. “I’ve been friends with Matt for about 10 years. He came round to ours one night and I manipulated him with a lot of alcohol. I said, ‘Did you have a good night?’ [He said], ‘The best, the best energy.’ I said, ‘Do us a favoir, be in the video for us.’ He agreed with a bad hangover.”

Most recently, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds released “Blue Moon Rising” EP in early 2020. Gallagher formed the group after leaving Oasis in 2009.
