Noel Gallagher has revealed that he has “albums worth” of unheard Oasis songs. The former guitarist and chief songwriter said he’s never entered the recording studio with less than 30 songs, reported Digital Spy.
“I’ve had a stockpile of songs since 1993. I’ve never written for a specific project, I’ve never been in the studio with less than 30 songs. I’ve just recorded an album, but I’ve still got another 30 songs,” Gallagher said. Gallagher explained that he wrote at a faster rate than the band released records.
“Instead of writing 15 or 16 songs for a cycle of where (Oasis) were at, we were using five, but I was still writing 15, 20 songs, so there’s loads of stuff left over from those days. Albums and albums worth of material. Because you move so fast as a writer, and you can only really do ten songs on an album at a time, lots get left behind.”
The rock band split in 2009.
