Here’s five things we know about Mr LG’s LP so far:
1. IT’S “EPIC”
After describing the incredible moment Liam Gallagher played him rough demos in a helicopter, director Mat Whitecross told NME his new material was “epic,” “raw” and “fantastic”. The 39-year-old film maker added: “It just blew me away. I think everyone’s in for a treat.” However, he was travelling to Manchester’s Supersonic premiere by helicopter with Liam Gallagher himself, so no wonder it was “epic”.
2. IT’S NOT STADIUM ROCK
Despite the fact Oasis and Liam Gallagher are known for producing some of the biggest belters in the history of British music, Liam has teased his upcoming release has a far softer sound. Speaking to Daily Star magazine earlier this week he revealed, “It’s a pretty Working Class Hero kinda thing”. Interesting. So no big fireworks then?
3. IT’S REMINISCENT OF THE VELVET UNDERGROUND
On top of him thinking it was epic, Mat Whitecross also told NME that the album “reminded (him) of The Velvet Underground”. Nice.
4. IT HAS “LENNONY VIBES” AND AN “ACOUSTIC” SOUND
Considering the fact Liam Gallagher is one of John Lennon’s biggest fans, it’s not surprising that a his solo record has some trace of the Beatles star. Speaking to the Daily Star this week, the rocker divulged: “It’s a pretty Working Class Hero kinda thing – Lennony vibe, you know what I mean. It’s like acoustic.”
5. IT WON’T MAKE YOU THINK TOO HARD
When straight talker Liam Gallagher first made the announcement that he was going solo, he told Q magazine his record wouldn’t leave you “scratching your chin”. He added: “It’s not Pink Floyd and it ain’t Radiohead. It’s chin-out music.”
