Noel Gallagher Performs “Dead in the Water” on The Late Late Show
- British singer-songwriter Noel Gallagher appeared on Irish television's The Late Late Show to perform “Dead in the Water”.
The song is included on his band, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' third studio album “Who Built the Moon?”, which was released in 2017.
At that time, Noel Gallagher said of the song in an interview with BBC Radio 4 Front Row. “We were doing a radio session in Dublin, in Ireland and it's on YouTube, and I'm doing The Dying of The Light. So we go there, we're doing that and it's all going great. The guys come out and you can hear the studio chatter and the guy is saying, 'Can we do it just one more time?'. And I had just written the song a couple nights before and they were messing about, moving microphones around and it sounded so good in my headphones that I just started to sing that song. I had no idea it was being recorded, right? No idea at all. We get to the end and the guy says, 'is that a new song?'. And I'm like, 'yeah'.”
He continued, “Fast forward a couple of years, we're in a meeting in the office and they're like, 'Well, there's no bonus material for this album, so what're we gonna do?'. And I was like, 'well we didn't do any b-sides, so not sure what we're gonna do'. One of my people happened to be in the studio that day and he pipes up and said, 'What about that song you did in Dublin?', and I was like, 'what song?', and he said, 'that thing that you did that time?'. And I went, 'yeah, I'm not gonna re-record that.' And he said, 'no, they recorded it that day!'. And I'm like, 'get out!'. So we got in touch with the studio (RTE) and lo and behold, they recorded it. And what you're hearing there is just me singing it for myself. When I heard it back, I was actually open mouthed at how good it was, and I thought, 'I'm gonna put that on the album!'. Because that is such a special moment in time, and I might never re-record that because it's such a personal moment for me. And it's live, and it's as bare naked as you can get. And it was a brand new song, and it really is a great tune.”
Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds released their new song “We're On Our Way Now” from their upcoming greatest hits compilation album “Back The Way We Came: Vol 1 (2011-2021)” on April 30, 2021.
The new album is set to be released on June 11, 2021.
