It would seem that when it comes to the issue of brother Liam, former Oasis songwriter and guitarist Noel Gallagher simply can’t stay quiet. Even a recent legal wrangle between the famously turbulent brothers has failed to keep him silent.

Speaking about his new album Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, the 44-year-old singer claims that one track in particular, (I Wanna Live in a Dream in My) Record Machine, was initially meant to be performed by his sibling for an earlier Oasis album. Speaking to the NME, he revealed that his brother and band mate “either refused to sing it or couldn’t sing it. I can’t remember which one it was.”

“I think Liam had f***ed off home to get married or something,” he later continued.

Nevertheless, critics have generally reacted positively to the new album, with Q Magazine stating that “there’s ample proof that he’s remains one of the best.”

Noel Gallagher’s debut album was released worldwide today on CD/DVD, vinyl and digital download. It features two singles, The Death of You and Me and Aka… What a Life, the latter originally written by Noel for Madonna, no less.
