Story by Jack Foley

OASIS have confirmed that they will be releasing a new single, The Shock Of The Lightning, on September 29, 2008 and their new album, Dig Out Your Soul on October 6.

Dig Out Your Soul finds Dave Sardy returning to the producer’s chair following his work on the band’s 2005 album, Don’t Believe The Truth.

Recorded at Abbey Road and mixed in Los Angeles, all four members once again contribute tracks, but the recording marks a new approach for the band

Speaking about the album, Noel Gallagher said: “I wanted to write music that had a groove. I wanted a sound that was more hypnotic; more driving. Songs that would draw you in, in a different way. Songs that you would maybe have to connect to – to feel.”

Commenting on the new single Gallagher added: “If The Shock Of The Lightning sounds instant and compelling to you, it’s because it was written dead fast. And recorded dead fast.”
