Noel Gallagher has pulled out an NFT trump card in the chart battle against Foo Fighters


This weekend, two stalwarts of modern rock music battled it out for the top spot in the UK music charts. However, Noel Gallagher and his "High Flying Birds" had an ace up their sleeve to topple the mighty Foo Fighters. In order to gain an advantage over the prolific song merchants, they released an NFT version of their album entitled 'Council Skies'.

On 8 June, just before the weekend countdown, fans were able to purchase a digital version of the new album through leading music platform Web3, Serenade. Through this release, collectors not only got a high-quality digital copy of the album, but also signed and colourful limited edition artwork, exclusive access to the 'Council Skies' documentary series and a digitally signed lyric sheet.

Two rock icons clash in the music charts

The release marked a crucial period in one of the tightest chart battles of recent times, with the two bands separated by a razor-thin margin. Foo Fighters currently hold a slender lead of around 500 units, with streaming figures yet to be taken into account.

Noel Gallagher and his current band, the High Flying Birds, chose the right moment to turn to Web3.

So there was only one day left for sales to count in the final tally, and the NFT release could make all the difference!
