Noel Gallagher - Noel Gallagher Prepares Record Store Day Release

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds are releasing a vinyl for Record Store Day on April 21.

The 'If I Had a Gun' singer and guitarist's project will release the 12 inch record containing four tracks - The Good Rebel', 'Let The Lord Shine A Light On Me', 'I'd Pick You Every Time' and 'Shoot A Hole Into The Sun' - which have previously been released as B-sides.

The records will be pressed on opaque white heavyweight vinyl, individually numbered and limited to 2,000 copies for the UK.

Noel has long been a supporter of record shops - which have severely depleted in number with the rise of internet shopping and downloads - and recently said if he ruled the world he would make it mandatory for people to buy records.

He said: ''I would pass a law that a made people buy records. And I would make record shops open up again - particularly where I live, where there isn't a record shop.

''I've been forced onto the internet to get music, which is a disgrace.''

Noel also recently said he'd like to collaborate with Damon Albarn - who's band Blur released their first track in seven years, 'Fool's Day', for Record Store Day in 2010.

He said: ''If I was gonna make a record, it would be with Damon. For a start, he's as mad as a box of frogs. Number two, he'd get loads of hip-hop dudes working on it, which itself would be f***ing mental. And number three? It would be a better record.''
