Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds today reveal the video for the new single ‘Open The Door, See What You Find’. The candid performance video was filmed in the legendary Studio 1 at Abbey Road Studios, where the tracks’ uplifting strings were recorded in April of last year.

‘Open The Door, See What You Find’ forms the centrepiece of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds recent studio album ‘Council Skies’. The track is a prime example of a master songwriter at the very peak of their powers and reaches an incredible sense of release in its soaring chorus. The track is one of three on ‘Council Skies’ to feature Johnny Marr on guitar.

Discussing the writing and recording process at his North London Lone Star Studios, Noel says: “Johnny’s guitar here is great – distinctive, and simple, and you wouldn’t think it was him playing on it. There’s so much joy in this track. Lyrically, the premise is that at a certain point in your life that you look in a mirror and you see all you’ve ever been and all you’re ever going to be. And 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’ follows the singles ‘Pretty Boy’, ‘Easy Now’ and the recent title track ‘Council Skies’. A decade since the formation of High Flying Birds, ‘Council Skies’, produced by Noel and Paul ‘Strangeboy’ Stacey, this is the band’s fourth studio album, released on Sour Mash Records. The album was greeted with a wave of acclaim from fans and critics alike and is widely regarded as Noel’s most complete solo statement to date.

This weekend sees the band embark on the UK & Irish leg of summer outdoor shows, having recently returned from a 26-date USA tour, co-headlining with Garbage. Dates include a huge homecoming gig at Manchester’s Wythenshawe Park on August Bank Holiday weekend & Royal Hospital Kilmainham on 27 August. This will be followed by a full UK arena tour in December 2023. Tickets are on sale here.
