Noel Gallagher: I Wanted Madonna To Sing Track Off My New Album

Noel Gallagher has revealed that he originally wanted to give a song that appears on his forthcoming album to Madonna.
The track, ‘AKA…What A Life’, a dance song, is one of the highlights of the former Oasis guitarist’s debut solo album, ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’.
In an interview with The Sun, Gallagher said he considered giving the song to Madonna initially, but that his wife Sara MacDonald advised him against it…

“It was very acid house to begin with and so I was thinking of giving it to someone.
I thought about Madonna then Sara said, ‘Don’t be daft, Madonna won’t sing it. When are you likely to see Madonna?’
So that spoiled it.
The song’s easily up there with the best things I’ve ever done.”

Gallagher also revealed that he asked Fatboy Slim to remix the song but he turned it down because he couldn’t do anything to the song.
