Beady Eye have spoken to NME about the secrets behind the tracks on their debut album 'Different Gear, Still Speeding'.

Liam Gallagher's band are on the cover of new issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands now (March 30) or available digitally.

Gallagher, Andy Bell and Gem Archer revealed the history behind their debut single 'The Roller', which was written in 2001 and hailed by the singer's then-Oasis bandmate Noel Gallagher as "a fucking Number One single".

The band also reveal that the intro music to their recent gigs is an instrumental song named 'Yellow Tail'. It was written by Archer and completed while rehearsing for the tour.

"Me and Andy, at the last rehearsal in Brixton, the day before [their first gig in] Glasgow, were still finishing it," he explained.

Meanwhile Gallagher also gave his verdict on Beady Eye's tour so far as NME follows the band throughout Europe. He also gave his thoughts on other bands including The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys and Elbow.
