Reports that Liam Gallagher is working on his debut solo album have been dismissed by a spokesperson for the singer.
“Liam is eyeing up summer festival slots so he can preview some of his new stuff,” the source said. “Though he knows his songwriting isn’t as consistent as Noel’s, he’s also well aware that his name carries a lot of clout in the music industry. His solo record would be one of the most highly-anticipated releases in British rock.”
However, when reached for comment by NME, a spokesperson for Gallagher described the report as being “a totally fabricated rumour” and added that the suggestion he is working on solo material is “not true”.
Over the weekend, Gallagher posted a photo of himself holding a backstage pass to one of his brother Noel’s concerts. Liam Gallagher posted the image to his Twitter account, followed by the caption: “Keeping it in the family…LG x”
Recently, Noel Gallagher said his younger sibling Liam should make a solo album and “put his balls on the line”.
“I’m very fucking sad about Beady Eye, because I know they really wanted to make it work,” Noel said. “I wanted it to work for them. I was out with Gem Archer the other night. The vibe I’m getting is that it was a shock, although not completely surprising.”
Noel Gallagher added: “I’m amazed Liam has chucked it in, but he won’t stay out of the limelight for long. I think Liam should make a solo record – put his balls on the line, put his name up in lights and go for it.”
