Liam Gallagher has revealed that Beady Eye are "definitely experimenting" on their new album.

Last month (November 2012), the band announced that they have returned to the studio with a surprising choice of producer - Dave Sitek. Sitek is best known as a member of TV On The Radio, but his production work includes albums by Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Foals.

Discussing the band's new album with The Sun, Gallagher said: "I hate the word 'experimenting', but we are definitely experimenting. In five words, it's 'majestic', 'imperial', 'out there' and, er, what was the other one? Oh yeah, 'heavy'."

Beady Eye released their debut LP, 'Different Gear, Still Speeding', in February 2011. The album peaked at Number Three on the UK albums chart and spawned the Top 40 hit 'The Roller'.

Continuing, Gallagher promised that the band's new album will be a definite step up from their debut. He explained: "It's different to the first. It's been heads down, none of that nonsense from the Nineties. We've got our shit together. It feels like a really special album. You know when you normally go through a door and go, 'Er, I'm not really sure about that'. Well, we've fucking booted the door off the hinges."
