Liam Gallagher believes his new band Beady Eye will be bigger than Oasis.

The singer told the Sunday Times his music has "never sounded better" and revealed plans for having a single out before the end of the year, with an album to follow in summer 2011.

He claimed Beady Eye - which features former Oasis men Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock - have finished three-quarters of the album, with each member contributing four songs.

Gallagher said the band will have a Beatles-esque sound "similar" to Oasis, with other influences including T.Rex and Jerry Lee Lewis.

"It'll be bigger [than Oasis]. I've got no doubt about the music, no doubt about me," he said.

Gallagher continued: "It's proper rock'n'roll. Oasis was a pop band compared to what we're doing."

The frontman also discussed his relationship with his brother Noel Gallagher and the domestic situation surrounding seeing each other's children.

He concluded by predicting the former Oasis leader will "come crawling back very fucking soon".

Last month, Liam Gallagher said that although he was initially "gutted" about the Oasis split, it was "the best thing that's ever happened".
