People up and down the country are finding various ways to keep themselves busy whilst we're in lockdown right now - and it turns out that Noel Gallagher is no different. The High Flying Birds star has been doing something productive with his time at home... Having a big spring clean.

However, during the clear out, Noel has unearthed a previously-unheard Oasis song that he thought had been lost for 15 years, entitled 'Don't Stop' and recorded with his brother Liam Gallagher and the rest of the band at a sound check in Hong Kong.

In news that will enrich the lives of Oasis fans everywhere, Noel took to Instagram to announce that he's planning to release the song at midnight tonight - so keep your eyes and ears peeled.

Noel wrote, 'Hey there dudes and dollies. Like the rest of the world I’ve had infinite time to kill lately so I thought I’d FINALLY look and find out what was actually on the HUNDREDS of faceless unmarked cd’s I’ve got lying around in boxes at home.

'As fate would have it I have stumbled across an old demo which I thought had been lost forever. As far as I’m aware there is only one version of this tune “out there” from an Oasis soundcheck in Hong Kong about 15 years ago? I’m not sure whether the soundcheck version pre-dates the demo as there’s no date on the cd.

'I know some of you love this tune so we thought we’d put it “out there” for you to enjoy/argue over. It’ll be up on the Internet from midnight. The song is called: 'Don’t Stop...' Hope everyone is staying safe and trying to ride out the lockdown with the minimum of fuss. You’re welcome by the way. ???(NG)'

Of course, fans have gone wild for the news, with many writing messages of excitement and joy on the post. One wrote, 'THANK YOU NOEL', as many others tagged their friends in with expletive-riddled joy.

This comes after photographer Kevin Cummins said that Noel thinks an Oasis reunion could be marred by mobile phones, telling The Quietus, "He said, ‘We were the last band really where you could go to a gig and nobody was taking pictures, and that’s what made it exciting'."
