Yesterday Madame Tussauds London announced that Bowie would be honored with a second wax figure. The star’s new statue will be unveiled at the attraction’s site on Baker Street in London in March 2022.

Meanwhile, Gallagher shared a preview of High Flying Birds’ upcoming album on New Years Day, sharing a demo of a song called “Trying To Find A World That’s Been And Gone: Part 1”.

“I finished writing / demoing NGHFB’s next album about 10 days ago,” he informed fans in a mailing list newsletter. “I thought you might want to hear this little track which – like last year’s offering – sounds very appropriate for this New Year’s Day. “

A few days earlier, he had revealed that he was planning to film the making of his next album at Abbey Road Studios. The disc could, according to the musician, include some acoustic ballads. “One is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written, it has great chords and it’s very, very sad,” he said.
