Remix of ‘AKA... What A Life!’ will be B-side to Gallagher’s latest single ‘Everybody’s On The Run’

Regular Noel Gallagher collaborators Amorphous Androgynous have remixed ‘AKA...What A Life’, the most recent single from Noel Gallagher’s solo record Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. Gallagher will release the remix, clocking in at 16 minutes, as the B-side to his upcoming single ‘Everybody’s On The Run’. You can listen to it below.

Gallagher’s second solo record under the moniker Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, a collaboration with prolific electronic musicians Amorphous Androgynous, has been long in the pipeline. In April this year he told AZ Central that the collaboration may have to be shelved due to the amount of work left to do on the record, stating “Whether it’ll ever see the light of day or not, I don’t know. There’s a lot of work left to be done. A lot of work. I just did my bits in the studio and left it up to the Amorphous Androgynous to artistically direct it. And unfortunately for everybody, they’ve not finished it.”

Still, it looks like there’s still hope for the collaboration, as Noel has more recently told NME that he will be re-starting work on the album this month, with plans to “finish it off after the tour in October”. Explaining the reason for the delay he added “I’m not just putting a record out for the fucking sake of it. At the moment it’s not a great record – so it won’t come out until it is.”

When the collaborative album between Gallagher and Amorphous Androgynous will eventually see a release is currently anyone’s guess, but Gallagher’s new single, featuring the Amorphous Androgynous remix of ‘AKA...What A Life!’ as a B-side is scheduled for July 30th.
