Coldplay vs Noel Gallagher
21 Jul 2011
Coldplay and Noel Gallagher could be facing a chart battle when their albums hit the record stores just one week apart in October.
The ex-Oasis guitarist releases his long-awaited solo debut album “High Flying Birds” on 17th October and is expected to top the album charts that week.
Coldplay will be unveiling the follow-up album to their multi-Platinum certified album, “Viva La Vida” the following week on 24th October. Chris Martin’s gang is also expected to enter the album charts at Number 1, eventually refusing Noel Gallagher the top spot for a second consecutive week.
Noel Gallagher might secretly crosses his fingers and hope, Coldplay’s ill-received lead single “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” has turned fans off buying the new Coldplay album.
The two indie heavyweights last clashed in 2005 when Coldplay’s “X&Y” album knocked Oasis’ “Don’t Believe The Truth” off the top spot.
