Liam Gallagher has admitted that a new Beady Eye song is about Noel Gallagher and that it features a couple of digs at his brother and former Oasis bandmate.

The song, titled 'Don't Brother Me', will feature on the new album 'BE', details of which were confirmed yesterday (April 10). Speaking to Shortlist about the song, Liam admitted that it is about Noel and that he does not care that it draws attention back to their relationship. Discussing the track title, Gallagher says: "Well it just sounds shit, 'Don't Sister Me', doesn't it? Especially when I haven't got a sister. People will pick up on it, but I'm ready to go there. So yeah, it's about our kid."

Gallagher adds: "The tune is the tune, I love the tune more than having to go and speak about it. I could've tried to call it something else but that's what it is. It's a lovely fucking song. I love the song. I'm not gonna change the title to make my life easier." Going on to discuss the lyrics, Liam says: "It's a bit contradictory. There's a load of love in there and a load of fucking... There's a lot of love in there but there's also a couple of – humorous, I think – digs. There's nothing malicious in there, 'cos it's not in my nature. I wish I could write a malicious one – you'd fucking know about it if I could – but I couldn't."

Liam also recalled the last time he saw Noel, shortly after he performed at the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games in 2012. revealing what happened that night, Liam said: "I wasn't that pissed actually. I'd only had like… four bottles of champagne. I thought I was pretty pleasant, you know what I mean? I said, 'What do you make of that then, you fucker?' And he went, 'Uh yeah, it was alright.' Then I said, 'I seen your mates there, they said to say hello,' and he went, 'Who?' and I said, 'Take That,' and he went 'Urggh'. That was it and I turned me back and had a drink."

Beady Eye release 'BE' on June 10, with Liam Gallagher saying that the Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs) produced album has "none of that crap from the '90s" on it.
