Story by Jack Foley

NOEL Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have announced a special collection of remixes of latest single It’s A Beautiful World, which will be released exclusively for Record Store Day 2018 on Saturday, April 21, 2018.

The tracks will be released on limited edition monochrome, dipped 12” vinyl. Further to the acclaimed remixes on Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ previous records, Andrew Weatherall provides a vocal mix and darker dub.

On the B-side, legendary Hacienda residents Mike Pickering and Graeme Park join forces to provide a mix which harks back to the heyday of the legendary Manchester nightclub.

This is the first remix the duo have made together in over 25 years.

The full tracklisting for the vinyl is…

A1. It’s A Beautiful World (Andrew Weatherall Vocal Remix)
A2. It’s A Beautiful World (Andrew Weatherall Dub Remix)
B1. It’s A Beautiful World (Mike Pickering Graeme Park Hacienda Mix)
B2. It’s A Beautiful World (Mike Pickering Graeme Park Hacienda Instrumental Mix)

Noel commented: “I love Record Store Day. It gives us, the artists, a chance to put music out there that otherwise might never see the light of day. I love the fact that the items are very limited edition and I do utter the phrase ‘I’ll save that for Record Store Day’ a LOT. Here’s a question though – since when do we have ‘stores’ in the UK?”

Record Store Day 2018 takes place on Saturday 21st April. The annual celebratory event was launched in the UK in 2008.

It has since enlisted more than 220 independent record shops across the country to take part. Each year, special vinyl releases are made exclusively to mark the day, and many towns and cities across Britain host special events and performances.

Record Store Day is now a global event, bringing together fans, artists and thousands of independent record shops to celebrate vinyl around the world.
