Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have announced an exclusive London show for 2022, taking place in the grounds of the stunning English Heritage property Kenwood, on London’s Hampstead Heath.
Taking place on Sunday 19th June 2022, the show will also feature very special guests Jake Bugg and Confidence Man.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds first emerged in 2011 with their eponymous album released in October that year. The album went double platinum in the UK and has sold over 2.5 million copies worldwide.

In the two decades prior to this release, Noel Gallagher was the main songwriter, lead guitarist and occasional lead vocalist of British band, Oasis - one of the biggest bands ever to emerge from the UK. His band played a tremendous role in shaping and inspiring British guitar music from the 1990's onwards.

The second album ‘Chasing Yesterday’ was released in March 2015 - the first album to be produced as well as written by Noel.

A third album ‘Who Built The Moon?’ was recorded in sessions spanning 2 years with renowned producer and composer David Holmes in Belfast and London.  It was released in November 2017 and debuted in the UK at Number 1, marking a record-breaking 10th consecutive chart-topping studio album in the UK for Noel – no other artist has achieved such a feat.

Last year saw the release of ‘Back The Way We Came: Vol 1 (2011-21)’ - a Best Of celebrating a decade of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.  The track listing was curated by Noel comprising a diverse body of work including tracks from the 3 studio albums, 3 EPs plus 2 new brand-new singles – ‘We’re On Our Way Now’ and ‘Flying On The Ground’.  This was Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds‘ 4th consecutive number 1 album and the 12th number 1 album across Noel’s career.

Jake Bugg is a British singer-songwriter whose first album, the self-titled ‘Jake Bugg’, reached number 1 in the UK Album Charts in 2012 with hit singles such as ‘Lightning Bolt’. Since then, he has gone on to have a further four top selling albums
The most recent of these, ‘Saturday Night, Sunday Morning’, was released last year to critical acclaim.

Hailing from Australia, Confidence Man are undoubtedly one of the hottest acts on the planet right now. The quartet (led by Janet Planet and Sugar Bones) released their debut album ‘Confident Music for Confident People’ in 2018, winning multiple Australian awards, whilst internationally they have performed at festivals including Rock en Seine, Glastonbury, and Primavera.

Pre-sale for tickets from Thursday 25th November with general on sale from Friday 26th November.

Bio: Jake Bugg

Shuffling, playlisting and cherry-picking your favourite songs is all well and
good, but sometimes you can’t beat sitting down with an album and playing
it from start to finish. An album that sounds like it was recorded in one room,
with the same group of people and that perfectly captures a specific
moment in time.


Jake Bugg’s last album, 2016’s On My One, was a dizzyingly eclectic
collection of styles and sounds, but for the follow up, the 23-year–old wanted
something that felt like the LPs that took pride of place in his own record
collection. Albums take you into their own, sealed world. “On the last album
it was fun to experiment with different instruments and writing styles,” reflects
Bugg. “But this time around I just wanted to make a complete record as
opposed to a collection of songs. Just write the tunes and record them with
great musicians.”


He’s certainly got his wish for Hearts That Strain. Starting in January this year,
Bugg would write songs at home then fly out to Nashville to record them with
some of the best players in the history of popular music. As part of American
Sound Studio’s legendary house band The Memphis Boys, Gene Chrisman
and Bobby Woods provided the chops on such pivotal records as Dusty In
Memphis, In The Ghetto, Suspicious Minds and Dark End Of The Street, cutting
their teeth in sessions with Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin and Dionne
Warwick.


“They’re old guys but they’re amazing,” Bugg recalls with disbelief. “It was ten
to five and then that’s it. They'd pack up and we’d done two or three tunes.
It was a mad vibe being from England and meeting these absolute legends
and then cutting some tracks with them.”


Working with producers David Ferguson and Matt Sweeney, Bugg’s time in
Nashville proved to be incredibly productive. In just three week-long trips
they’d finished the album. “Nashville is mad. Everybody plays out there. You
go around somebody’s house for a few beers and just jam with them.”
One of the people he ended up just jamming with was The Black Keys’ Dan
Auerbach, who collaborated with Bugg on breezy opener How Soon The
Dawn, the shuffling rockabilly get-down I Can Burn Alone and In The Event Of
My Demise, a tune that sounds like a generations old folk song the pair have
freshly dug up out of the Mississippi mud. “Dan’s wicked,” smiles Bugg. “He’s
got this amazing work ethic, he just knuckles down and gets on with it.”


Another chance encounter provided a surprise collaboration. When Bugg
was back in the UK writing, mulleted country rock superstar Billy Ray
Cyrus stopped by the studio and was so taken with the rough version of
Waiting he heard being played off the desk that he suggested his daughter -
younger sister of Miley and rising star in her own right - Noah Cyrus should sing
on it. The result is one of Hearts That Strain’s finest moments - a Southern Soul
waltz of a ballad to which a swooning Cyrus vocal brings the direct
emotional wallop of the best country music. “I’d never really collaborated
with many singers so I was a bit unsure," recalls Bugg, "but when they sent it
back it was amazing. It was a nice surprise. When I come back in it sounds
terrible, but when she’s singing it sounds alright!”


Nashville, Billy Ray Cyrus, seasoned session pros… anyone for whom the idea
of Jake Bugg in a Stetson and bootlace tie might cause unease can rest
easy. Hearts That Strain is still very much the same voice and remarkably
assured songwriter of Lightning Bolt and Slumville Sunrise, it's more that his
surroundings and the players around him have bled into the record’s mood
and warm, glowing production. It's there in the gently strummed mandolin
that floats in on Southern Rain, the deft finger picking on the title track, the
sighing pedal steel that glides through This Time and the slapback echo and
crackling guitar lines that make I Can Burn Alone sound like it could have
been cut at Sun Studios. More importantly, it provides the threads that run
through Hearts That Strain that make it feel like more than the sum of its parts.
Rather than be an album to dip in and out of, it’s an organic whole that from
the moment you press play you have to see it out to the final note.


“I just like putting out records,” reflect Bugg with characteristic
understatement. “I like making albums, I like listening to albums. If you listen to
a lot of those classic records throughout each track you can tell that it’s
recorded in the same place. It’s nice to have that consistency.” It seems
reports of the album’s death have been greatly exaggerated.
