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.
