Last week, Liam Gallagher offered up a surprise acoustic sessions EP based around songs from last year’s ‘Why Me? Why Not?’ LP, his second solo effort.

He also shared a new video for single ‘Once’, which saw him linking up with another Manchester hero: Eric Cantona.

Haim, meanwhile, are currently working on their upcoming third album, which they spoke to NME about in a recent Big Read feature.

“The mantra of this record is all about being fearless,” they said of the new album. “I feel like there are so many times when there’s that voice in your head going. ‘Be scared, be scared, stop, stop, stop,’ and with this record, we’ve shut that thing off so if one of us is like that, I have two sisters who say, ‘Keep going’.”
