Noel Gallagher to take a break from music

London: Former Oasis member Noel Gallagher is planning to take a break at the end of his winter tour to make sure his next album is not rushed.

The 45-year-old singer, who released his debut solo album Noel Gallagher`s High Flying Birds in 2011, is planning to take a well-earned rest once he wraps up his North American dates in November, reported Daily Star.

"I won`t be recording again for a while as I don`t want the follow-up to be compared to Oasis` critically-panned third record be Here Now.

"I`m taking a well earned break after this. Why mess with brilliance? Look what it did to the aftermath of Morning Glory. Be Here Now," he said.
