Songfacts®:

  • The phrase "easy now" is typically used as a way of telling someone to calm down or to ease up on something.

    Here, Noel Gallagher is addressing a stressed individual. He extols them to "ride the storm" rather than letting the problems they're facing grind them down. The singer assures them he'll be waiting for them.
  • Gallagher wrote the psychedelia-inspired single himself. Paul Stacey, who worked for Oasis in several capacities between 1999 and 2008, produced the track. Stacey also co-produced the two new songs on the Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds compilation album Back the Way We Came: Vol. 1 (2011–2021): "We're On Our Way Now" and "Flying On The Ground."
  • The Colin Solal Cardo-directed video stars House Of The Dragon actress Milly Alcock. Gallagher makes a cameo appearance.

    Colin Solal Cardo is a longtime collaborator with French artist Christine and the Queens. He's also worked with Robyn ("Ever Again") and Charli XCX ("White Mercedes").
