Liam Gallagher says he ‘can’t be arsed’ to write his own songs

Ex-Oasis frontman is preparing his debut solo album for 2017

Liam Gallagher has spoken about his upcoming solo album, saying that he “can’t be arsed” to write his own songs and would rather be part of a band.

Gallagher is set to release a solo album next year, while also remaining open to an Oasis reunion. Liam is reportedly mostly working on his solo debut alone, with help from only a handful of collaborators.

Speaking recently, Gallagher – who wrote several Oasis songs including ‘Songbird’ – admitted that he “can’t be arsed” to pen his own songs, explaining: “Noel was the songwriter of the band and I was the singer. I didn’t wanna be a songwriter. We can’t even fucking speak together; imagine writing a fucking song together.”


“I’m quite happy being the fucking cool bastard. I’m not arsed about writing songs – you do it because you have to,” he added, as reported by The Daily Star.

Describing the sound of his upcoming solo album, Liam said: “It’s a pretty ‘Working Class Hero’ kinda thing – Lennony vibe, you know what I mean. It’s like acoustic.”

“Then there’s a couple of rock and roll tunes on there, but it’s not Oasis man,” he continued. “It’s not fucking stadium rock, you know what I mean?”

Liam Gallagher recently denied that he is “desperate” for an Oasis reunion.

The Gallagher brothers have had a tense relationship since the Britpop group’s 2009 split, with Liam recently criticising Noel publicly, calling him a potato, a toad, a “scary clown”, describing him as the “Ronnie Corbett of rock” and comparing his brother’s dress sense to that of Gary Barlow.
