Liam Gallagher: album would be free 'over my dead body'

Oasis have quashed rumours that they were planning to release their next album with Radiohead-style pricing, with fans choosing how much to pay for the release.

Frontman Liam Gallagher said he would never let an Oasis album be given away for free. Specifically, he said he would allow it to happen “over my dead body”.

Gallagher went on to talk about how Oasis’ new album sessions in north London‘s Abbey Road studios were going.

“There’s lots of cool parts,” he told Reuters. “Really, we’re throwing everything at it.

“Hopefully our kid’s [Noel Gallagher] learned his lesson [about over-tweaking things in the studio]. It shouldn’t be hard making music. We’ve been doing it long enough.”

The follow-up to 2005’s ‘Don’t Believe The Truth’ is expected sometime in 2008.
