Noel Gallagher, who was the co-lead vocalist and principle songwriter for the band Oasis, has teamed up with Paul Weller, who achieved notoriety with the punk rock band The Jam and later with The Style Council, to write a song for The Monkees' new album.
Appearing on the Zilch! podcast in the latest episode released this afternoon, Rhino's John Hughes, who is acting as executive producer for the brand new Monkees studio album, Good Times!, confirmed that all three members of The Monkees will be full participants on the album:
"[Producer] Adam (Schlesinger)...is working very closely with all three guys...all three are on the album and full participants…playing on tracks, singing (obviously), contributing songs...it's really all The Monkees, and that includes Davy."
Davy will be a part of the new album by way of Neil Diamond's "Love to Love," first recorded in 1967 but never officially released on an original Monkees album. It will appear on Good Times! in a reworked version with Davy's lead vocal.
Please note that this is a MUST LISTEN interview, and it's available for streaming and downloading on the Zilch! website.
