Beady Eye have started work on their second album.

The 'Roller' rockers - made up of former Oasis members Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock - are now in the studio working on a follow-up to 2011's 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' and have this time teamed up with producer Dave Sitek.

An official statement said: ''Beady Eye have returned to the studio to start on the follow up to their 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' debut album released last year. Liam, Gem, Andy and Chris started sessions today with producer Dave Sitek. Release date is yet to be confirmed but the as yet untitled album will come out in 2013.''

Sitek is most famous for being a member of TV On The Radio and is closely associated with the New York scene of the 2000s.

His credits include 'It's Blitz!' by Yeah Yeah Yeahs and 'Anywhere I Lay My Head' by Scarlett Johansson.

Beady Eye were formed in 2009 after Oasis split - following Liam's brother Noel quitting - and guitarist Andy recently said he can't see the group reforming in the near future.

He said: ''I'd love it to happen. I think that life's too short for it not to happen. But, in reality, do I see it happening? At this point, no I don't. The matter rests entirely with the two brothers. It probably should happen at some point but if they can't make it happen, no one should force them to.''
