'I can always write music in my own house for pleasure'

Liam Gallagher has said that is likely to quit making music and touring if his upcoming album fails – but has vowed to never ‘make an EDM track’.

The former Oasis and Beady Eye frontman will release his debut solo album ‘As You Were’ on 6 October, and says that his future as a singer depends on its success.

“If the album comes out and it bombs, there is no real point doing another one,” he told The Daily Star. “There is no point going through the rigmarole of interviews and touring if no-one wants it.”

He continued: “Touring is hard, especially at this age and especially if no-one turns up. I guess I will do something else. I can always write music in my own house for pleasure.

“I won’t change genre. I won’t do an EDM track to jump on that bandwagon and just to stay in the limelight as they say.”

Speaking of people’s expectations for the record, Gallagher said: “There will be a lot of people who will hate it without listening to it, just because it is me.”

However, Gallagher is confident in his resolve ahead of the album’s release – saying that he’ll ‘come back stronger’ after his ‘two failed bands‘.

“I’m fucking glad I’m back, mate,” he told GQ, “because I know for a fact they’re sitting there – and you say they might be happy – but they’re sitting there going, ‘Fuck me, mate. He’s come again, man. Two divorces, fucking illegitimate kids, fucking two failed bands behind him, three bad haircuts and he’s still fucking coming’.

“Oh, and I’m gonna fucking come even more, mate, do you know what I mean? Because that’s the way it is. That’s who I am. That’s what I do. I’m not gonna sit back and let them win. So they should be fucking scared. They should be afraid. Without a doubt. This is the third coming.”

Liam Gallagher performs at Reading & Leeds festival on August Bank Holiday Weekend, alongside Eminem, Muse, Kasabian, Bastille, Major Lazer, Haim, You Me At Six, Blossoms and many more.
