NOEL Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have announced the Wait And Return EP – a special remix collection of tracks which will be released exclusively for Record Store Day 2019 on Saturday, April 13.

Released as a limited edition 12” pressed on teal coloured vinyl with new sleeve artwork by Gareth Halliday, it will feature three new remixes of tracks taken from the Number 1 album, Who Built The Moon?.

London-based French DJ/producer Nicolas Laugier, aka The Reflex, provides remixes of She Taught Me How To Fly and Keep On Reaching, while British artist Richard Norris reworks Black & White Sunshine.

The forthcoming release follows the huge success of last year’s 12” of It’s A Beautiful World, which was the biggest-selling vinyl single of 2018.

The full track-listing for the Record Store Day exclusive vinyl is:

A1. She Taught Me How To Fly (The Reflex Revision)
A2. Keep On Reaching (The Reflex Revision)
B1. Black & White Sunshine (Richard Norris Remix)

Noel says: “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.”

She Taught Me How To Fly was the third single to be taken from the album Who Built The Moon?, which also features the other tracks remixed on the EP.

The album debuted in the UK at Number 1, achieving gold certification in less than two weeks after its release – making it a hat-trick of Number 1 albums for Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.

The Mercury-nominated Who Built The Moon? was also a record-breaking 10th consecutive chart-topping studio album in the UK for Noel – no other artist has achieved such a feat.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds recently announced new UK tour dates in May with support from Gaz Coombes – with all shows now sold out. The 11-piece line-up will perform in more intimate venues in Edinburgh, Llandudno, Hull and, for the first time ever for Noel, The London Palladium.

With Noel currently recording new material in studios in London and LA, the shows are a chance for fans to potentially hear the new material for the very first time.
