Liam Gallagher promises new Beady Eye album 'BE' will have 'none of that crap from the 90s'
The band's second LP is set for release on June 10
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:
