Noel Gallagher, one of the former members of Oasis, has two announcements for fans today. First, he and his band, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, have released a new song, “We’re On Our Way Now.” This is the band’s first new music since last year’s This Is The Place EP.

On top of that, Gallagher has curated a greatest hits album, Back the Way We Came: Vol. 1 (2011-2021), due June 11, 2021, via Sour Mash. In the past decade, the band has released three studio albums (all reaching number one in the UK) and eight EPs. Now, fans get to hear all their best songs in a two-disc album, along with a bonus remix disc. Check out the new single and the tracklist below.

“10 years of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds?? Blimey! Just think of all the things I COULD have done in that time!!” Gallagher said in a press release. “The title just came to me one afternoon, at the kitchen table.
