Dig Out Your Soul sees Dave Sardy return to the producer's chair following his work on Oasis' 2005 album, Don't Believe the Truth. Recorded at Abbey Road and mixed in Los Angeles, all four members once again contribute tracks but the recording marks a new approach for the band as described by the band's principle songwriter, Noel Gallagher: "i wanted to write music that had a groove; not songs that followed that traditional pattern of verse, chorus and middle eight. i wanted a sound that was more hypnotic; more driving. songs that would draw you in, in a different way. songs that you would maybe have to connect to - to feel."
