Brilliant New Noel Gallagher & Johnny Marr Track

The elder Gallagher has released the second track from his forthcoming second album - and it's a belter.

The Ballad of the Mighty I follows up In The Heat Of The Moment, which was unveiled in October last year and has definite overtones of AKA... (What A Life!), the standout moment of his self-titled High Flying Birds debut album. There's shuffling drums, an insistent bassline and an epic feel as the track weaves its way along - it also features legendary Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, who can seen skulking in the background of the live band section. The single will be released on February 23, a week before the album, Chasing Yesterday, which is due March 2nd.

Noel spoke to NME about Marr's involvement on the song, saying "He just arrived with two guitars and a bag of effects pedals. And I have to say, he’s unbelievable. He’s way up there, on another level to the rest of us. The result is a burst of energy that helped make …Mighty I one of the best songs I’ve ever written."

The video itself is also bookended by a few sly comedic moments - watch below and enjoy.
