Oasis man set to release solo album in 2017 despite previous denials
Liam Gallagher has tweeted following news that he is set to release a solo album.
The former Oasis frontman had previously denied that he would go solo, arguing that he wouldn’t do so because he is “not a c**t”. However, it has now been announced that he’s inked a deal with major label Warner Bros for a solo LP, coming in 2017.
Responding to the news and his previous comments, Gallagher has now taken to Twitter to write: “It’s official I’m a cunt LG x”. See that tweet below.
“Very excited to be signing to the mighty Warner Brothers; looking forward to making some super sweet sounds,” Gallagher said of news of his upcoming album. “Keep the faith!”
Gallagher recently spoke to Q about his new album, revealing that he’s working on new music with “two lads I know”. He elaborated: “One’s a multi-instrumentalist and he can play anything. Not that there’s much to play on these songs. One guitar, acoustic. One guitar, electric. Drum kit, keyboard about that big [measures out 12 inches between his hands]. That’s your lot. Proper sparse, really pumping. How it should be. We’ve demoed some songs…”
“I am not embarking on a solo ‘career’,” Gallagher went on to clarify. “Everyone should know that. There are just 10, 11 songs I’ve written that are eligible to be recorded. They’ve got flair, attitude, the melodies are sick and the words are fucking funny. We’ll record them this year and release it next year. It’ll shock people. It’s a record written by me, that’s got all the right ingredients and sounds well tasty. You won’t be scratching your chin. It’s not Pink Floyd and it ain’t Radiohead. It’s chin-out music.”
