Liam Gallagher has revealed plans to start recording his first solo album in the New Year.

The ex-Oasis frontman said he has been demoing a host of new tracks with fellow ex-Oasis members Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Zak Starkey in a new MTV Italy video interview. Watch it by clicking below.

Gallagher said he was a "million per cent" confident the new songs were better than anything his former band have done.

"We've been demoing some songs that we've had on the quiet," he said. "After Christmas we might go in the studio and record it and hopefully have an album out in July.

"We'll do it in a different kind of way now. I'll try and reconnect with a new band, new songs and I'm feeling confident about the songs. I'm feeling a million per cent confident that they could be better than Oasis."

The singer also admitted that he still thinks a lot of his brother Noel, and said he was sad to see his old band split.

"I love him [Noel] to bits but we just don't get on," he explained. "Me and our kid have never been that close anyway. Alright, we were in the band but we kept ourselves to each other, he'd do his thing and I'd do my thing, I've got my friends, he's got his friends.

"We'd only sort of hang out when we were on tour. We didn't have a solid relationship, but we both thought Oasis was great."

Gallagher also said he is continuing to promote his clothing range Pretty Green, with a view to opening a store in the UK next year.

"Music is where it's at," he added. "Music is first, clothes are second. If it all goes well hopefully we can maybe get a shop in London. If it goes really well we'll get a shop in Italy. I want it to be all over the world."

Gallagher's comments come just days after he said he will play his first solo gig in a couple of months.
