LIAM GALLAGHER Not quite solo album

It’s not hyperbole to describe former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher as an era-defining voice and one of the frontman of his generation. Now following the demise of his band Beady Eye in 2014, Gallagher is back with his debut solo single Wall of Glass, the harmonica-bolstered first taste of his forthcoming album As You Were. Check it out below.

Whether or not TV On the Radio’s Dave Sitek is involved again after producing Beady Eye’s second album BE is yet to be revealed. The producer indicated his interest after Beady Eye’s demise in 2014, stating “Liam Gallagher should get back in the studio with me.”

We do however know that mega-producer and songwriter to the stars Greg Kurstin has a piece of the action. The Grammy Award-winning songwriter of hits such as Adele’s Hello is getting involved because, as Gallagher has said, he struggles with choruses: “I can’t write those fucking big songs. I’m limited. My verses are up there, but I just can’t do that next bit.”

The familiar elements of classic Oasis are all there – huge waves of guitar, a melody you can’t shake, a thunderous rhythm and Liam Gallagher’s voice. Boosted by a contemporary, bass-heavy production, it’s a track that provides a fresh new angle to Liam’s sound while maintaining many of the traits that made him Supersonic in the first place.
