Released as a limited edition 12" pressed on teal coloured vinyl with new sleeve artwork by Gareth Halliday, it will feature three new remixes of tracks taken from the No.1 album, Who Built The Moon?

London-based French DJ/producer Nicolas Laugier, aka The Reflex, provides remixes of She Taught Me How To Fly and Keep On Reaching, while British artist Richard Norris reworks Black & White Sunshine.

The forthcoming release follows the success of last year's 12" of It's A Beautiful World, which was the biggest-selling vinyl single of 2018. 

Record Store Day is the one day of the year when over 200 independent record shops all across the UK come together to celebrate their unique culture. 

Special vinyl releases are made exclusively for the day and many shops and cities host artist performances and events to mark the occasion. 

Thousands more shops celebrate the day around the globe in what's become one of the biggest annual events on the music calendar. 

Noel says: "I love Record Store Day. It gives us, the artists, a chance to put music out there that otherwise might never see the light of day. 

"I love the fact that the items are very limited edition and I do utter the phrase "I'll save that for Record Store Day' a lot."

She Taught Me How To Fly was the third single to be taken from the album Who Built The Moon?, which also features the other tracks remixed on the EP. 

The album debuted in the UK at No.1, achieving gold certification in less than two weeks after its release – making it a hat-trick of No.1 albums for Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. 

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds recently announced new UK tour dates in May with support from Gaz Coombes – including a headline spot at the Isle of Wight Festival

With Noel currently recording new material in studios in London and LA, the shows are a chance for fans to potentially hear the new material for the very first time.
