Blink Publishing has acquired the first official book from Noel Gallagher.
Kelly Ellis, Publishing Director – Adult Non-Fiction at Kings Road Publishing acquired UK comms (excluding Canada) to publish the book, titled Any Road Will Get Us There (If We Don’t Know Where We’re Going).
The book is the behind-the-scenes story of Noel’s biggest ever world tour with his band, The High Flying Birds, and the making of his critically-acclaimed album Who Built the Moon?
One of the UK’s most-influential and most-loved artists, Noel has had a momentous year, with his third number one solo album, a Mercury Prize nomination and a 72-date tour across the globe – and this book documents every step of the journey.
Through the lens of former official Manchester City photographer, Sharon Latham and words from Hamish MacBain, this is Noel Gallagher as you’ve never seen him before.
Curated by the man himself, the book contains hundreds of unseen, intimate, beautiful shots from both on and off-stage, that takes the reader right across the USA, Canada, UK & Ireland, Europe, and Southeast Asia, alongside candid interviews and anecdotes from Noel as well as contributions from his band and crew.
This is a must-have book for fans who want to join one of music’s greatest heroes through one of the most memorable moments of his career.
Kelly Ellis said: “This is the book that fans have been waiting a long time for – the first and only official book from Noel Gallagher. It’s been a phenomenal year for Noel and the magic of it all has been captured beautifully by Sharon. It’s an intimate insight into life on the road for one of the world’s biggest artists. The band clearly had a lot of fun and I know fans will too when they read it. It’s a real passion project for everyone involved and I couldn’t be more excited.”
Any Road Will Get Us There (If We Don’t Know Where We’re Going) is set to publish on 1st November 2018.
