Beady Eye will play the first song from their forthcoming second album on April 15, it has been confirmed.
A spokesperson for Liam Gallagher’s band tells NME that the song will be played on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show on the Monday night after fans began speculating that the song would receive its premiere as soon as next week.
Beady Eye have recorded their new album with producer and TV On The Radio member Dave Sitek. Discussing the band’s new album earlier this year Gallagher said: “I hate the word ‘experimenting’, but we are definitely experimenting. In five words, it’s ‘majestic’, ‘imperial’, ‘out there’ and, er, what was the other one? Oh yeah, ‘heavy’.” A new track was played at London club night This Feeling earlier this month when Beady Eye guitarist Andy Bell was DJing.
Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that Beady Eye will perform at this year’s Summer Sonic Festival in Tokyo and Osaka. The festival is headlined by Muse and Metallica and takes place between August 10-11. Linkin Park, MIA, The Smashing Pumkins, Fall Out Boy, Two Door Cinema Club and The Weeknd will also perform across the two day event.
Beady Eye released their debut LP, ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding’, in February 2011. The album peaked at Number Three on the UK albums chart and spawned the Top 40 hit ‘The Roller’.
