Been touched on before but I don't think he's confirmed it until now:

Noel Gallagher has revealed that his collaboration album with psychedelic producers Amorphous Androgynous has been scrapped.

Speaking to entertainment.ie when asked about the album he said: "I have scrapped it now, because I'd recorded it these guys were mixing it. I'd yet to take delivery of it the night before the press conference. And I thought well f*ck it I will just announce it how shit can it be? The famous last words. I kind of got it and I didn't like it. So they tried to remix it while I was on the road, and that was not working".

He continued: "So during my time off I got back to England got into a studio, and I didn't like it. And with this album still being in the top ten in England, I couldn't have brought it out now anyway as it would kill this one stone dead. By the time I get of this tour, I'm going to not be in the mood for going back into the studio. It's still there, it isn't finished and even if was finished it is nowhere near as good as this so everything has to match up to this one".

This is the difference between him and a guy like Paul Weller. Weller would release it regardless of whether or not it was commercial

In every interview I see him in now he goes on about how the album was 'well received by the press and fans alike'.

A true artist wouldn't care about such things. For further proof see Voyagers Of The Interstellar Inner Mind Trip by The Jesus Abyss.

I think we should applaud Noel not releasing music. Long may it last.

It's so obvious that once Noel's tour is completely done he's gonna sit on his arse until 2015 when the Morning Glory 20 year tour will be. They'll whore that all through the summer then 2017 we'll get a new Oasis album.

I reckon Beady Eye will do a second album next year while Noel does a few appearances on shit TV programs like Top 100 spoons.

I wish I could say I'm surprised, but I'm not. Moreso, I wish I could say I'm disappointed, but after hearing the two things we've heard so far...I'm not.

More mid-tempo 'carry us all'-style rockers, Noel! MORE!

Comments on the AA album in an interview with AV Club:

"AVC: You just said the album you made with Amorphous Androgynous is scrapped. Is that official, or are you still considering releasing it?

NG: No, I don’t think it will come out. I’m pleased with the songs. The songs that I did when I was in the studio—I’ll probably re-record them. But the moment has passed, I think. Do you know what I mean? When you have records, there’s a window before their moment passes. I’ve already moved on from that Amorphous Androgynous thing. I’ve written a bunch more songs since then, so I’m afraid—unfortunately—the success of this album killed that one. I wasn’t planning on being on tour for 15 months.

AVC: What’s wrong with it? What don’t you like about it?

NG: Well, it was a record that contains songs that weren’t conventional songs. It wasn’t verse-chorus-verse-chorus. They’re a bit trippy and a bit floaty. My songs, in general, they don’t really rely on the mix. They’re all written on acoustic guitar. They’re as good with me just singing them into the microphone in the style of Bob Dylan as they are with a full band. The High Flying Birds album didn’t rely on the mixes. The songs were there. This was a record that—absolutely, 100 percent—relied on the mixes, because they weren’t songs, so to speak. They were grooves and, you know, there weren’t many chords in them. And the mixes weren’t fucking right. And unfortunately, I didn’t have time to go back in and remix it. And now I’m too fucked. I’m fucked. I’ve been on the road for 15 months. I am fucked.

AVC: Have you considered having someone else mix it?

NG: No. I’m a little bit of a control freak when it comes to my music, unfortunately. I need a holiday. I’ve suddenly started to look like Keith Richards. That’s not good.

AVC: And he’s older than you are.

NG: He’s a hundred years older than I am!

AVC: One could imagine this project fading into obscurity, or lingering in the minds of your fans, like the Beach Boys’ Smile, until you relent and finally release it.

NG: Maybe. I guess there’s lots of things that one could revisit down the years. I don’t know. I don’t even know when I’m going to make another record. Right now, I’m in the middle of touring and it’s taken quite a lot out of me. It depends. If I got in the studio next time and somebody says, “What about that track you did with those fucking hippies?” I might go and listen to it and think, “Hmm. Well, okay.” I don’t know, but I don’t think so."

surely pretty close to being the most backwards thing a big-name musician has ever said?
