With the prospect of an Oasis reunion seeming ever more phantasmal, Liam Gallagher is pressing forward with his solo career.
The younger Gallagher’s third solo LP, C’Mon You Know, is due out on Friday, 27th May. The album’s first single, ‘Everything’s Electric’, is available now. Liam co-wrote the song with Dave Grohl and producer Greg Kurstin. Grohl also plays drums on the track, which was inspired by The Rolling Stones’ ‘Gimme Shelter’ and Beastie Boys’ ‘Sabotage’.
Kurstin produced a handful of tracks on Liam Gallagher’s first two solo LPs, As You Were (2017) and Why Me? Why Not. (2019). Kurstin and Grohl have been working together for roughly the same period of time, with Kurstin producing Foo Fighters’ 2017 release, Concrete and Gold, and the band’s latest effort, Medicine At Midnight (2021).
Last year, Oasis celebrated the 25th anniversary of their historic back-to-back performances at Knebworth Park with the release of the documentary film, Oasis Knebworth 1996. Directed by Jake Scott, Oasis Knebworth 1996 was compiled from extensive reels of concert film and behind the scenes footage, much of which had never been seen before.
In late 2021, Gallagher told Radio X’s Chris Moyles that he intends to return to Knebworth solo this year. “The young folk want it. They’re always telling me, ‘When are you gonna do this Knebworth thing?’ I think the time is now or never,” he said.
“The beautiful thing about it is, I couldn’t remember much about the first time. So I get the chance to do it again. Obviously I’m older and a little bit wiser. I’m gonna milk it, really take it in.”
