Oasis 'Frustrated' By Album Setbacks

Subscribe to Oasis alerts

Oasis new album has been postponed until at least February next year (05) after the band's "frustrating and fruitless" attempts to complete it.

In a letter to British music magazine NME, songwriter Noel Gallagher reveals the setbacks that have befallen the follow-up to 2002 LP HEATHEN CHEMISTRY - which OASIS began recording last November (03).

The letter reads, "We started talking about recording a new Oasis album in November last year. We thought it would be a great idea to try something different with the production this time around, and Liam came up with the idea of using DEATH IN Vegas as producers/mixers, which everyone believed would be a fantastic collaboration.

"We drew up a list of songs (10 in total), booked Sawmills Studio in Cornwall (south-west England) and gave ourselves three weeks.

"Unfortunately, after the recording process we decided we didn't like anything we had played/recorded during those three weeks, and because of commitments with Death In Vegas, RICHARD FEARLESS and TIM HOLMES couldn't find any more time to give to the project.

"It was then decided we would attempt to finish off the record ourselves, which so far has proven quite frustrating and fruitless. All the while, new songs have been written and old ones have fallen away. So we think the 'moment' for that particular record has passed.

"We plan to start work on a new set of songs some time in July (04) and we hope to have a new album out in February/ March 2005, so hopefully you will hear some new tunes by the end of the year (04)."
