In addition to being estranged from their former bandmates, Noel Gallagher and Johnny Marr now have something else in common.
The former guitarists of Oasis and The Smiths, respectively, have teamed up on a new song called “Pretty Boy” for Gallagher’s High Flying Birds solo project. The track is the first preview off the forthcoming new High Flying Birds album, the follow-up to 2017’s Who Built the Moon?
“For this new record it was the first thing I wrote, the first thing I demoed and the first thing I finished, so it’s only right that it’s the first thing people get to hear,” Gallagher says of “Pretty Boy.” “Massive shout out to my mainest man Johnny Marr for taking it somewhere special.”
You can listen to “Pretty Boy” now via digital outlets and watch its accompanying lyric video streaming now on YouTube.
We’ll see if Noel and Johnny’s union leads to a Liam Gallagher/Morrissey collaboration.
