Beady Eye have announced details of their brand new album, which will be titled 'BE'.

Over the weekend the first track from the album, titled 'Flick Of The Finger’, premiered on US radio station – scroll down to listen to it. Recorded in London with super-producer Dave Sitek, 'BE' sees the band experiment with cassette tapes, samplers, and iPhone apps.

"Working with Sitek just opened something up in us," Liam Gallagher says in a statement. "He’s without a doubt the best producer I’ve ever worked with, a real outlaw - he doesn’t give a fuck, no rules. We had a new found focus when we were writing it - we really got our heads down and got our shit together - clear heads, none of that crap from the '90s. It feels like a really special record for us."

"It’s a trippy record!" Dave Sitek adds. "The strength of the tracks is so high that we got to really play around! It’s rock band instrumentation, but used in a different way. Liam’s vocals are incredible, all you have to do is turn on a microphone and you’re like, ‘That sounds like a record!’ You don’t have to do anything to them."

Earlier this morning (April 10) Liam Gallagher began posting the 'BE' album tracklisting on Twitter. See below:










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'. The band have already been lined up festival slots at V festival and T In The Park this summer.
