Noel Gallagher In The Studio With Johnny Marr: Watch
In the behind the scenes clips, which were shot by Gallagher’s daughter Anais at his Lone Star studio, Marr can be seen working on the track’s guitar melodies, while another shows Gallagher recoding the acoustic guitar and vocals.
The first clip is captioned, “A legend at work. Behind the scenes at Lone Star, 2022.”
Speaking about Pretty Boy at the time of release, Gallagher said:
“For this new record it was the first thing I wrote, the first thing I demoed and the first thing I finished, so it’s only right that it’s the first thing people get to hear. Massive shout out to my mainest man Johnny Marr for taking it somewhere special. Oh … and watch out for a cameo from me in the video … first one to spot me wins a bag of Flamin’ Hot Wotsits Giants!!”
