(CBS) Oasis? Who needs Oasis?

Former Oasis songwriter-in-chief and guitarist Noel Gallagher will release a solo album in October. It will be his first post-Oasis release following his split from the band.

The first solo album is called "Noel Gallagher's Flying Birds," reports the Guardian. It has 10 tracks and is produced by Gallagher and David Sardy, who produced Oasis' "Dig Out Your Soul" and the bulk of "Don't Believe the Truth."

Gallagher said in a press conference that he's recorded a second album, a collaboration with Amorphous Androgynous, to be released sometime in 2012.

In the press conference Gallagher made clear he hadn't been finished with Oasis, but had enough of working with the band's lead singer, his younger brother Liam.

In August 2009, after a fight with his brother, Noel said in a statement on the band's website, "People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer."

Former Oasis members Andy Bell, Gem Archer and Liam Gallagher formed the band Beady Eye and released the full-length album "Different Gear, Still Speeding" in February 2011.
