Oasis have scrapped their upcoming sixth album, after the muted response given to two new songs they showcased at last weekend's (25JUN04) Glastonbury FESTIVAL.

Noel Gallagher and bandmates will return to the studio and restart recording the new material from scratch, after their two latest tracks failed to capture the musical festival crowd's imagination during their set at the seminal event on Friday.

Guitarist Gallagher says, "It's back to the drawing board. Hopefully it will be out by the end of the year (04) but I wouldn't have thought so."

Earlier this year (04) the British band recorded the LP with dance stars Death In Vegas as producers, before sessions ground to a halt.

Gallagher explains, "We've got to decide what kind of record we're going to do now. What we tried with Death in Vegas didn't happen. The moment's passed for those songs."
