Noel Gallagher and his High Flying Birds solo band will release a best-of compilation on June 11.

The 18-track collection is titled Back the Way We Came: Vol 1 (2011-2021), and celebrates the band’s first decade with songs from throughout their discography.

“The title just came to me one afternoon, at the kitchen table,” Gallagher says. “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!”

Back the Way We Came also features two brand-new songs, including “We’re on Our Way Now,” which is available now for digital download.

Gallagher formed High Flying Birds following the dissolution of Oasis in 2009. The group has released three studio albums, the most recent of which is 2017’s Who Built the Moon?

Meanwhile, Liam Gallagher, Noel’s estranged brother and former band mate, has released two solo albums: 2017’s As You Were and 2019’s Why Me? Why Not.
