Who Built The Moon?, the third album from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, will be distributed and marketed by Universal Music Group in more than 150 territories around the world.

Those markets include the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand – representing a fresh partnership between Gallagher’s own Sour Mash label and UMG, in a deal led by Universal Music’s UK International team based in London.

The keenly anticipated follow-up to the platinum-selling Chasing Yesterday (2015), will be distributed by Universal Music Group in North and South America, Asia (excluding Japan), Australia, New Zealand, Eastern Europe and Russia when it is released on Friday, November 24th.

“We’re delighted that they have put together this bespoke deal to enable us to work with a really exciting hand-picked team on the new Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds album.”

Caroline will take care of the distribution in the US. There’s been no announcement on the UK distributor, however – suggesting the domestic contract will remain with Warner’s ADA.

Ignition Management partner Alec Mckinlay said: “We have longstanding relationships with many of the UMG family around the world.
