Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have today released a new song, ‘Open The Door, See What You Find’ ahead of the eagerly anticipated new studio album ‘Council Skies’, released on Friday via Sour Mash Records.
Speaking about the track, Noel says, “Lyrically, the premise is that, at a certain point in your life you look in a mirror and you see all you’ve ever been and all you’re ever going to be. It’s about being happy with that. Being happy with where you are in life, with who you are, and where you’re going. Life is good!”
‘Open The Door, See What You Find’ also features longtime friend and collaborator Johnny Marr on guitar. This is the fifth new song to be revealed from ‘Council Skies’ following ‘Pretty Boy’ (also featuring Johnny Marr), ‘Easy Now’, the epic ‘Dead To The World’ and the current single ‘Council Skies.’

A decade since the formation of the High Flying Birds and having achieved four consecutive UK Number One albums, ‘Council Skies’, produced by Noel and Paul ‘Strangeboy’ Stacey, is the band’s fourth studio album and widely regarded as Noel’s most complete solo statement to date.
The release of ‘Council Skies’ will kick start a huge live season for the band, beginning with a 26-date USA tour, co-headlining with US alternative rockers Garbage which starts on Friday, coinciding with the album release. The band then return to the UK in July to play an array of UK outdoor shows and headline festival performances, including a show in the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, Dublin on 27 August, with special guests Primal Scream & Happy Mondays. This is followed by a full UK arena tour throughout December 2023. Tickets are on sale here.
