Noel Gallagher Mixing Oasis Disc

Oasis songwriter/guitarist Noel Gallagher is in New York

this week mixing the band's fourth album, according to a spokesperson

for Creation, Oasis' UK label. The disc is scheduled for release early

next year, with a world tour to start in March. Oasis lost two founding

members last month when guitarist Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs and

bassist Paul McGuigan made back-to-back announcements that they

were quitting the group.
