Noel Gallagher has said that musicians who hire teams of songwriters to help them make songs are “ruining music” and revealed that he has turned down offers to write for other artists.
Gallagher, who releases new album ‘Chasing Yesterday’ in March, revealed this in a new interview with BBC Radio Four . In the same interview he also criticised the lack of working class voices in the current music scene.
As the conversation turned to the subject of song writing, Gallagher chastised the way some songs are written. “We live in a time where I would say 90 per cent of people don’t write their own songs anymore and they get away with it because of iTunes and the internet because there’s no album covers anymore so nobody looks at who is writing the songs and arranging the songs,” he said.
