The self-titled record will arrive on Oct. 17 in the UK after a productive run of recording sessions in London and LA since 2010 -- so productive, in fact, that he's already completed a second album to release next year.
During the press conference, Gallagher said of the first album, "There isn't a guitar solo on it 'til the sixth track. It's not f---ing 'Guitar Hero.' Some of it's vaudeville, some if it's space jazz, some of it's kraut rock. And that's just the first track."
When it comes to touring, Gallagher has confirmed that, unlike Beady Eye, he will definitely be performing tracks from Oasis's back-catalogue. Noel told a press conference (via BBC Newsbeat): "They're my songs and I wrote them all by myself. I'm proud of them and what they mean to other people. You've got to be on stage and see what the reaction is of the crowd when you play 'Don't Look Back in Anger.'
"Unfortunately those songs are like drugs to me. I don't think I'd ever do a gig without playing them. That would be crazy. That would be like Paul McCartney doing the O2 and just playing Wings stuff."
The first album has seen Gallagher reunited with occasional Oasis producer Dave Sardy, who last worked with the defunct band on the 2008 release 'Dig Out Your Soul.' A lineup of off-radar but well-regarded musicians feature on the record, with Jeremy Stacey on drums, Mikey Rowe on keyboard, guitarist Jon Graboff,and percussionists Luis Jardim and Lenny Castro.
The second album is a collaboration with the group Amorphous Androgynous, a "cosmic" side-project from electronic music pioneers Future Sound of London.
Gallagher will tour with the group in the autumn.
The tracklist is:
'Everybody's on the Run'
'If I Had a Gun'
'The Death of You and Me'
'(I Wanna Live in a Dream In My) Record Machine'
'AKA... What a Life'
'Soldier Boys and Jesus Freaks'
'AKA... Broken Arrow'
'(Stranded On) The Wrong Beach'
'Stop the Clocks'
