Start Anew

Songfacts®:

  • Liam and Noel Gallagher famously fell out, causing the breakup of Oasis, but the Beady Eye frontman denied that this acoustic track is him offering an olive branch to his brother. He told The Quietus: "If I wanted to offer him an olive branch then I'd fu--ing ring him up and apparently say sorry for what I didn't do. Not a chance. It's nothing to do with him. 'Don't Brother Me' has elements of him in it but 'Start Anew' has f--k all to do with Noely G."
  • Guitarist Andy Bell told Q magazine that producer Dave Sitek "coaxed the Neil Young solo out of me, and it spins into an ending that doesn't quite resolve." He added: "We never push the epic button too hard."
