Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have released It’s A Beautiful World, the second single from their Number 1 album Who Built the Moon?. The track was produced by acclaimed producer, DJ, and composer David Holmes, and features a French spoken word segment inspired by Gallic art house cinema performed by Charlotte Courbe. Despite Holmes’ insistence that Courbe “produced an astounding piece of writing that contrasted Noel’s song and music so beautifully”, I can’t say it adds much to the song, but check it out and make up your own mind.

The man with the most unfortunate fringe in Britpop scored his 10th consecutive Number 1 album with Who Built the Moon?, and his third with the High Flying Birds.

It’s A Beautiful World is released on 12″ vinyl and available to pre-order now – https://NGHFB.lnk.to/IABW12 – including a limited edition picture disc via Noel’s official store. It features the following tracklisting:

A1. It’s A Beautiful World
A2. It’s A Beautiful World (Instrumental)
B1. God Help Us All (Demo)
