The star's debut solo album 'As You Were' will be released in October
The album will feature four tracks produced by Adele/Beck collaborator Greg Kurstin, including the single ‘Wall Of Glass’. The rest of the album was produced by Dan Grech-Marguerat, who has previously worked with Radiohead, Mumford and Sons, and Circa Waves.
‘Chinatown’ is a more delicate cut than ‘Wall Of Glass’, the first track to have been revealed from the record. It features fingerpicked acoustic guitars and the lyrics: “Take me down through the streets of Chinatown/Show me that you know some places.“
Listen to ‘Chinatown’ below. ‘As You Were’ is released on October 6.

“I didn’t want to be reinventing anything or going off on a space jazz odyssey,” Liam has said of the album. “It’s the Lennon Cold Turkey’ vibe, The Stones, the classics. But done my way, now.”
Gallagher performed tracks from the album during his well-received Glastonbury set this weekend.
‘As You Were’ is available to pre-order now from Liam Gallagher’s website. It will be released in standard and deluxe editions on digital, CD, vinyl and limited edition coloured vinyl. A special boxset is also available to pre-order from this website.
“I’m sure he definitely knows that I’m fucking gonna come again, without a doubt,” Liam said in an interview with Q Magazine. “Course he’s fucking arsed. He plays it like he don’t give a fuck.”
