Liam Gallagher has spoken about Beady Eye's progress in recording their new album.

Gallagher, who supported The Stone Roses on Saturday (June 30) during the second of their three Heaton Park gigs over the weekend with Beady Eye, told BBC 6Music that the "songs are a lot better" this time around.

Asked how the band's second album was progressing, Gallagher said: "It's sounding good. We've got a bit more writing to do, but we'll go in and record some time this year. If Stone Roses and Beady Eye both release an album next year, everything will be alright."

Then asked how the band's second album would move on from their debut 'Different Gear, Still Speeding', Gallagher then said: "The first album came straight off the back of Oasis splitting up and we just wanted to be in a band again, so we just went straight in and did it. This time, we're taking our time a bit. We're not worried with having to be out there, we'll be there when the songs are absolutely bang on."

He then spoke about the band's feelings about writing quickly and said that even with Oasis, he always wanted to progress quickly.

Gallagher added: "We had the rug pulled from us by 'a certain someone', we didn't want the band to split up. We wanted to crack on and even when Oasis used to finish tours and talk about having years off, we'd all be like 'We're not getting any younger and if you like something, keep doing it all the time, have six months and then let's make another record'. So that's what we did with this one. The songs are a lot better on this album, they have to be."
