Liam Gallagher has said that he might quit music if the new Beady Eye album flops.

Speaking in a new interview with Q, Gallagher says that if new album 'BE' is not as successful as he hopes he might not be bothered trying again. "Well, if we're barking up the wrong tree with this record, I don't know if I can be arsed barking up it again," he says. Asked what he could do instead of music, Gallagher suggests that he'll never be a plumber or a fashion designer, adding: "Maybe I'd just sail off into the distance and enjoy my life, instead of worrying what some spotty little twat from Hastings thinks about the record."

However, as defiant as ever, Gallagher concluded by saying: "The album's gonna come out, hopefully people'll like it, and business as usual will be resumed."

Meanwhile, Liam Gallagher has revealed that the title of the forthcoming Beady Eye album – 'BE' – was not his first choice. The former Oasis singer, speaking to NME in the new issue on newsstands now and available digitally, instead said he instead wanted to title the album 'Universal Gleam' but was outvoted by his band and label.

Beady Eye release 'BE' on June 10.
