British rocker Noel Gallagher planned to launch his solo career with three new albums - but he abandoned the idea after becoming "sick" of writing new tracks.
The former Oasis guitarist hit a creative peak as he penned new songs following the band's breakup in 2009, and announced earlier this month (Jul11) he is to release two albums - a solo record and a collaboration with British psychedelic duo Amorphous Androgynous.
Now he's revealed he had enough new material to put out a third record, titled The Future Of Martial Arts, but gave up the plan because he was tired of songwriting.
Gallagher tells Q magazine, "Now I'm a free agent I thought I've got all these songs, so I'll make two records - but between you and me I made three, the third was going to be called The Future Of Martial Arts. I had nine great songs but had to split them up. I wanted to do some work with Amorphous Androgynous... so I made the albums concurrently. It was really exciting being that creative, but by the end I was sick of it."
