Liam Gallagher has said that he is sick of people saying he can't sing and that the new Beady Eye album will "get people off his back."

Speaking to Shortlist, Gallagher revealed that he deliberately didn't use any effects on his vocals when recording the new Beady Eye album to stave off critics.

He said: "I'm sick of fucking idiots saying I can't sing, you know what I mean? So I thought fuck this, no effects, none of that double tracking as much. Let’s get in there bare, this is how I sound, man. This is how my voice sounds so hopefully people will like it and get off my fucking back...It’s how I sound round the fucking house or on the back of a camel or whatever."

Meanwhile, Liam Gallagher was reportedly seen trying to ride a dog in a West London pub over the weekend after drinking champagne and whiskey. The singer was seen by onlookers racking up a £300 bill in The Old White Bear pub in the capital.

Beady Eye release 'BE' in June. The band recently revealed the album's NSFW cover which was shot by Harry Peccinotti, a photographer best known for his erotic work and for shooting the famous Pirelli calendars in 1968 and 1969. His Beady Eye sleeve features a semi-naked woman – the photographer's wife – lying on her back.

'BE' follows the band's debut LP, 'Different Gear, Still Speeding', which was released 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.
