‘Who Built the Moon?’, the third album from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds released last year on Sour Mash Records, is gold certified and debuted at Number 1 – making it a hat trick of Number 1 solo records following 2011’s eponymous album and 2015’s ‘Chasing Yesterday’. This is also a record-breaking 10th consecutive chart-topping studio album for Noel – no other artist has a perfect streak of Number 1 studio albums as long as Noel.
