Liam Gallagher’s describes his new album as ‘a bit peculiar’

Liam Gallagher has matured, but he admits that some of the tracks on his upcoming new album are “a little strange” – but he’ll blame the coronavirus pandemic if his new sound isn’t well received.

On ‘C’Mon You Know,’ the ‘Everything’s Electric’ singer collaborated with a diverse group of musicians, including regular collaborators Andrew Wyatt and Greg Kurstin, as well as Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner, and Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, and he admitted that fans may be surprised by the experimental nature of some of the tracks, but he’s ready with excuses if it
He said: “It’s a bit peculiar in places, which is good: 80 per cent madness and 20 per cent classic.

“If you’re going to start doing stuff like that on your third album, it helps if there’s a bit of Covid about.
“Because if it doesn’t take off, and people go, ‘I’m not sure about this, it’s a bit weird,’ we can blame it on the virus and go back to the classic stuff.”

A week after the album is released in May, Liam will headline two sold-out shows at Knebworth Park in Hertfordshire, the site of his former band Oasis’ legendary gigs in 1996 and he’s expecting the concerts will annoy his estranged brother and former bandmate, Noel Gallagher.

Asked if he thinks his success bothers Noel, he confessed: “Look, it’s got to, hasn’t it? I’m sure deep down he’s happy, he’s not all bad. But there’s going to be a bit of ‘the f*’s out and about again’.

“If he was doing Knebworth I’d be livid. I don’t care how much money you’ve got, how many houses you’ve got, how many celebrity mates, when you get home you’d be sitting there thinking ‘f***er’. But the geezer’s got many faces, so he can hide behind one of them.”

Liam Gallagher says he ‘went off the rails’ when Noel left Oasis: ‘I had to get my head together’
“If it happens, it happens. But I’m quite happy doing [my solo career],” Liam Gallagher added saying he would “love” Oasis reunion: “We should never have split up”Ever since the band’s breakup in 2009, rumours have periodically risen about a potential reunion, despite Liam and brother Noel not being on speaking terms. “But you know I love him,” he added. “We split up nearly 13 years ago. It’s ridiculous. We can go on about whose fault it is, but he’s his own man. If he really wanted to get in contact, for my mum’s sake, he could do it, but he obviously doesn’t want to. There are only so many olive branches you can offer.”

Back in 2020 Liam said that an Oasis reunion will happen “very fucking soon,” because he believes Noel is “greedy and he loves money and he knows that it’s got to happen soon or it won’t happen.”
