A special Record Store Day 12-inch also features former Haçienda residents Mike Pickering and Graeme Park’s first joint remix in 25 years.
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will release a remix EP on April 21st for Record Store Day 2018.
The band, led by Oasis member Gallagher, tapped Andrew Weatherall for one of the remixes of their track “It’s A Beautiful World.” They also commissioned one from Mike Pickering and Graeme Park, former residents at legendary Manchester nightclub The Haçienda—it’s their first collaborative remix in 25 years. A vocal and dub version of each rework will appear on the 12-inch, which will come as a limited promotional release on Gallagher’s label Sour Mash Records.
“I love Record Store Day,” Gallagher says. “It gives us, the artists, a chance to put music out there that otherwise might never see the light of day.”
You can hear the Weatherall remix at around 1:55:00 in this recording from NTS Radio.
