    We’re just two weeks away from the release of Black Star Dancing, the new EP from Noel Gallagher and his High Flying Birds. The 5-track 12-inch drops June 14th and is being previewed today with a new song titled “Rattling Rose”.

    “She got the soul of a bird/ She got a heart of gold/ She can make it rain in the color field/ She’s a rattling rose,” Gallagher opens the track, his voice steadily riding its driving rhythm.

    The alt rock group’s previous single, “Black Star Dancing”, pulled from ’80s greats like David Bowie and U2. “Rattling Rose”, however, takes a cue from a much more left-field source in… Slipknot? Gallagher explained in a statement,


    “It manages to combine the influences of Chris Rea, Chris De Burgh, Mike and the Mechanics, and Slipknot FFS!!! I may have eaten too many gummy bears recently… anyway it’s ‘jolly good’ … not my words but the words of David Cameron who literally did the hokey cokey at Soho Farmhouse when he heard it.”
