Gallagher also included ‘Sad Song’ – originally a bonus track on ‘Definitely Maybe’ – a version fronted by Gallagher was uncovered for the 2016 documentary Supersonic and also appears here.

Earlier today, Gallagher also shared a new video for ‘Once’ which features Manchester United legend Eric Cantona.
Having previously described the 2019 track as his “song of the year”, the new video shows the former Manchester United star passionately singing the track as he wanders through his vast palace.
As he heads from room to room, Cantona is seen swigging red wine poured by Gallagher himself, who assumes the role of his butler. He also plays a tune on a grand piano before he eventually assumes his rightful cloak and crown as he heads out into the wider world – with Gallagher opening the door to his chauffeur driven car.
Despite being a die-hard Manchester City fan, Liam said he was “thrilled” to secure Cantona’s involvement for the new video.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to have Eric Cantona, the last rock ‘n’ roll footballer, star in my video for ‘Once’,” said Liam.
“Songs like this don’t come around very often and neither do football players like him.”
