Noel Gallagher hinted that glam rock icon David Bowie has enough leftover material from his new album "The Next Day" for another record. He made the revelation during an interview with Absolute Radio for "Bowie Part 3 Let's Dance To The Next Day (1980-2013)". Noel said (via NME): "According to people I've spoken to, there's another album in the pipeline. There was, like, 29 songs or something."

However, Gallagher could not say when the new album would be released and admitted that it could be another 10 years before the record sees the light of day.

"I don't know what's next for Bowie. He could disappear for another ten years or there could be another album," he said. "He might do the greatest tour of all time or he might never gig again. Who knows?"

Praising the singer, he added: "I've got to say I was properly staggered about how good (the album) actually was. I don't believe for a second that he's thrown those songs together in two years. It sounds like a record that has been in the making for ten years. And if it is, I admire him even more. I genuinely put Bowie up there with some of the greatest there has ever been, with Elvis, John Lennon ... he's in that league."

    Gallagher having kind words for another artist besides The Beatles? For the first time in a while...
    No, it's not. He speaks kind words as often as mean words. It all depends of subject that he speaks with journalist.
    This isn't really news from Noel, loads of people have been reporting this since before the album came out.
    Noel often has good things to say. It's too bad that people lump the Gallagher brothers together since one writes all the hits and the other refuses to sing and then heckles the band throughout the performance. Admittedly I've listened sparingly to the album but most Howie trumps anything recent.
    Wow, something which noel has said which isn't bullshit about some random artist! News indeed
    Noel is the Gallagher I can stand. He may be a dick sometimes, but at least he is a good song writer, that is more than what we can say with Liam.
    How bout Liam recently saying he's a "Belieber"? Thats worth an article, so we can all bash him for his idiocy. He said he agrees with Justin Beiber making his audience wait 2 hours before finally going on stage. Had a lot of 12 year old girls upset. But in Liams book that's rockstar behavior. UG: run an article so we can make fun of him.
    I really this idea, but, frankly speaking, some close minded members of our community can not understand articles like that. I think it's a reason of not having sense of humor.
    First ! Havnt heard the album yet but im really put off with how over hyped it is.
    How can you possibly know if it's over-hyped without listening to it? Are you broken?
