Noel has previously admitted he still doesn’t like the idea of ​​videos for his songs, saying he ‘f*****g’ hates it ‘with a passion’.

In 2021, The High Flying Birds frontman explained how The Crown and Doctor Who star Matt came to be in his We’re On Our Way Now video.

Noel told Gary Kemp and Guy Pratt’s Rock composers podcast: ‘I hate videos. I hate them with a passion.

‘I hate the fact that they cost fucking money. And I have to look around in the rain all day with some director.’

He then explained that instead of doing the whole video himself, he would tell his pals Scully and Dan: ‘I say, “This is all I can afford, go do what you can and I’ll do it for 10 in it be seconds.” If I could, I’d blame another celebrity for being in it for me.’

Speaking about his good pal Matt’s appearance, he added: ‘One night he was around our house and when he left at four in the morning I said, “Hey mate, you don’t feel like being in a video ?” He said “yes, no problem”. And I kind of held him.’

Noel admitted he didn’t really know what was happening in the video and added: ‘The second video follows this one, so he (Matt) is in the next one too’.
