Beady Eye have confirmed that their next single will be ‘Shine A Light’, and have revealed footage of their performance of the song from this year’s Glastonbury festival.
The band opened the Worthy Farm festival this year, playing live on The Other Stage at 11am on the Friday (June 28) morning.
Speaking in the clip you can see above, frontman Liam Gallagher says he was keen to do “something different” with the band’s performance. “I loved it, absolutely loved it. I thought 11 o’clock could be really ropey but we did well, man. Someone just asked us if we wanted to play at 11 o’clock and we thought, ‘Yeah fuck it, why not man?’. We’ve headlined it and we’ve done all that, it’s time to do something different. Glastonbury is back in the good books.”
‘Shine A Light’ will be Beady Eye’s next single, the latest song to be taken from the band’s second album ‘BE’, and will be released on August 19. The announcement comes off the back of details of a UK tour this November. The band will play eight dates across the UK, kicking off in Glasgow on November 10 and ending on November 21 with a show at London’s Hammersmith Apollo. In between, there will be stops in Leeds, Newcastle, Wolverhampton, Portsmouth and two Manchester dates at the Academy on November 15 and 16.
