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.
