Single Formats: Digital & 12” Vinyl
Label: Sour Mash

After teasing fragments of songs and art from new album, 'Who Built The Moon?', Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds turn fans’ attention to the release of 'Holy Mountain', the first single to be taken from the new album out today through Sour MashGallagher supplements the digital release with a limited edition collectors’ 12” vinyl available from 24th November and to pre-order now -

Nestled high in the tracklisting of the follow up to the platinum-selling, 'Chasing Yesterday' (2015) and featuring Paul Weller on organ, 'Holy Mountain' is delivered with thundering self-assurance.

Gallagher says: “It was one of the first things David and I did on the first week of working together. I knew instantly that it was going to be the first single. There’s so much joy in it. Until the day I die, it will be one of my favourite pieces of music that I’ve ever written. It sounds great live. My kids love it, my friends’ kids all love it and I am sure ‘the kids’ will love it.”

The 12” vinyl release features Holy Mountain accompanied by an exclusive, instrumental version of the track, while the B-Side features 'Dead In The Water' (Live at RTÉ 2FM Studios, Dublin). Also offered as an album bonus track, 'Dead In The Water' catches Gallagher and keyboard player, Mike Rowe in between takes at a Dublin radio station. Such moments are destined to go unrepeated, with Gallagher vowing never to re-record it any other way.
