Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds releases ‘This is the Place’ video

WATCH: Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds with 'This is the Place'

Noel Gallagher has thrown things back to the past with not only his band’s latest single, This is the Place, but the music video as well.

The former Oasis-mastermind and his High Flying Birds dropped the funky throwback single earlier this month ahead of the release of the EP of the same name.

This is the Place serves as the second of three Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds EPs set to come out this year and the second in the band’s entire discography.

The bizarre Dan Cadan/Jonathan Mowatt music video takes the band through a variety of vibrant and colourful settings reminiscent of the 1980s thanks to the use of timeless green screen technology.

This is the Place is set for a fall release and along with the other two High Flying Birds EPs it was produced by David Holmes — who served as the producer for the band’s latest album, Who Built the Moon? (2017).

On the direction of his newer music outside of Oasis, Gallagher recently told Variety: “I’m 52 now, and I don’t give a f**k what people think about me or where I’m going.”

“I don’t give a f**k what Oasis fans think,” he added. “They’ve got the Oasis records. I can please myself from here on in.”

Meanwhile, Gallagher’s younger brother, Liam, has just released the fourth single off of his forthcoming album, Why Me, Why Not? The song is entitled One of Us.
