Oasis have revealed details of their forthcoming seventh studio album.

'Dig Your Soul Out' will be released in early October, and will be preceded by the single 'The Shock of the Lightning' in September.

Noel Gallagher said, of the album - which was produced by Dave Sardy, who worked on the band's last album in 2005 - "I wanted to write music that had a groove, not songs that followed that traditional pattern of verse, chorus and middle eight. I wanted a sound that was more hypnotic; more driving. Songs that would draw you in, in a different way. Songs that you would maybe have to connect to - to feel."

The band recently signed a three-album deal with current label SonyBMG.
