In recent interviews, Noel Gallagher has variously described the track as “Our poppiest thing since ‘Roll With It’ Annoyingly catchy. A bit like The Who.” and as “The Soundtrack Of Our Lives doing The Who on Skol in a psychedelic city in the sky (or something).”
Following the official single release statement claiming “‘Lyla’ is ‘Sally’s sister…” Noel Gallagher has revealled that the Lyla in the song is the sister of the Sally mentioned in the Oasis single ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ and the classic Stone Roses track 'Sally Cinnamon'.
Oasis will also be embarking on an extensive world tour that includes nine huge shows in the UK, including seven stadium gigs. Tickets for these dates sold out in record time, but the band will be headlining the V Festival alongside Franz Ferdinand and Scissor Sisters.
