NEWS DIGEST - TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30

Noel_gallagher_mojo_honours_list_20 Oasis are to enter Abbey Road studios on November 5, as sessions begin for their next studio album. Noel Gallagher has told BBC 6music that initial recording began six weeks ago. Two tracks have already been completed. "We start in Abbey Road a week on Monday" he said. "Then we'll probably work through a couple of months there, have Christmas off, then go and mix it and see where we're at."

Looking back to 2005's Don't Believe The Truth, Oasis' head honcho stated that, "the last album was quite 'songy'," and "quite British, retro, '60s sounding". This time around he revealed the band have been "focusing round the grooves more". "I've been re-visiting some of my more psychedelic trips of a younger man" he added.

Never one to hide his constant struggle to nail the next set of lyrics, Noel confessed he's "literally got nothing left to write about. I've written about being a youth, and I've written about being a rock star, and I've written about living life in the big city."

Oasis' seventh studio album (lyrics included) is due for release next year.

- It could easily be the title of the next Harry Potter spin-off series, but the tale of Cliff Richard And The Variable Download Album is very much rooted in reality. Cliff, 67, is set to launch himself into the digital domain next month, as he prepares for the release of his 700th* LP, Love (due November 12). But Cliff, who has apparently been “getting a buzz from creative marketing”, has given proceedings a bit of twist - the more pre-orders the record receives, the lower the price will fall, meaning the album could sell for the princely sum of only £3.99. Cliff told The Mirror: "As artists we face a stark choice. We either keep one step ahead of the technology or we throw up our hands and quit. Personally I'm not for quitting."

Wow...

It sounds like Nel ha exhausted ever subject known to Man. Who would have thought the answers to everything would be contained in Oasis's Back Catalogue.

I'm in awe, quite simply in Awe.
