Noel Gallagher Is Not A Fan Of The Music Industry’s New Friday Release Date

This week marked the change of the global record release date to Friday (which is why there hasn’t been an Album Of The Week yet — tomorrow, guys!). It’s a decision that has, understandably, been met with some skepticism and derision. Noel Gallagher also has an opinion on the change and, because it’s Noel Gallagher, he spoke with NME about it in a new interview. “Woah woah, says who?” he asks when he learns of the news. “I run my own fucking record label. I’ll release mine on a Wednesday just to be fucking contrary. Not Friday… No, no, no, no…”

He goes on: “Some fucker’s focus grouped that in a room somewhere to maximize some amount of record sales. If we have it on a Friday, then by the time it gets to Monday we’ll have already sold a million albums if one is Taylor Swift, presumably.”

And he ends with: “Unfortunately, it won’t make shit albums any better, will it? They’ll still sound shit on a fucking Friday.”

Watch him saying all of this below in his usual acerbic but funny way:
