Noel Gallagher has revealed that he paid off Abbey Road Studios so his band could record its new album there.

Irish rockers U2 apparently had the studio pre-booked for December, so Gallagher gave Abbey Road a "bag of money" to kick them out.

"U2 were booked in there with [producer] Rick Rubin," Gallagher told Mojo. "I was like, 'U2? U2 have to have a f***ing six-hour meeting [to discuss] whether to get tea or coffee in the rehearsal room!

"The guy from Abbey Road was like, 'I've got it block-booked for the exact time you want it.'"

The guitarist added: "We actually went down to Abbey Road with a bag of money, and said, 'We can pay for the studio now'."

Oasis's seventh studio album Dig Out Your Soul is released on October 6.
