New EP from Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
Blue Moon Rising marks the third EP in less than a year
Blue Moon Rising is the new five-track EP from Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. "Wandering Star" is the kickoff lead single. Blue Moon Rising marks the third EP from the elder Gallagher brother's band in under a year: Black Star Dancing came in June, followed by This Is the Place in September. Like those previous efforts, the new release features three original songs and two remixes. Unlike the past EPs, however, the lead single isn't the title track.
"Wandering Star" feels very appropriate for the season, sounding as if it's creeping ever so slightly towards a holiday tune. Bells ring out hopefully as psychedelic washes pan in the background, a spacey sleigh ride of a love song. "All of the dreams you have/ I have them too," Gallagher sings. "All of the songs I sing/ I wrote for you."
In a press release, Gallagher praised "Wandering Star." "It was written in Abbey Road last November on the same day I wrote ‘Black Star Dancing'. It's that good, it sounds like it took 5.4 people to come up with it. It's already a live standard and we haven't even played it yet."
