's long term friend and associate Mark Coyle
has revealed that the star's new solo album has the same "excitement and spirit" as Oasis
' debut album, "Definitely Maybe
It was announced that to mark the 20th anniversary of Oasis' debut album, the band would be reissuing their first three albums as expanded editions as part of their Chasing the Sun
Now Coyle, who co-produced "Definitely Maybe," told NME
that he heard Noel's new solo album earlier this month - and that Oasis fans are going to like it. "Noel's new album is f--king great,"
said Coyle. "It reminds me in some respects of the spirit of 'Definitely Maybe', because it’s so obviously exciting. That boy is from a different planet, and even the fans won't believe how utterly amazing it is."
Coyle continued: "He's not exactly struggling for an 11th song to complete the album. It's pouring out of him and he’s currently whittling it all down into an album. The new record will be seismic. It's so explosive that, on the day it comes out, Virgin Trains won’t be able to cope with all the people trying to flee the chaos."
The releases start with "Definitely Maybe" on 19 May. In addition to a remastered copy the album, the three-disc set includes an assortment of rarities, demos, and live recordings from the era. There will also be a deluxe box set and the remaster will be available as a single disc release and on vinyl. Pre-orders are ongoing via iTunes
