After the phenomenal reaction to his debut solo track ‘Wall of Glass’ and the success of his first solo shows, Liam Gallagher's eagerly anticipated debut album As You Were will be released on October 6th.
As You Were was recorded in two locations. Greg Kurstin performed all of the instruments on the four songs that he produced (‘Wall Of Glass’, ‘Paper Crown’, ‘Come Back To Me’ and the psychedelic whoosh of ‘It Doesn’t Have To Be That Way’), while Dan Grech-Marguerat produced the remainder of the album at Snap! Studios in London.
The result validates his passion for the classic 60s/70s, updated for the here and now.
“I didn’t want to be reinventing anything or going off on a space jazz odyssey,” says Liam. “It’s the Lennon ‘Cold Turkey’ vibe, The Stones, the classics. But done my way, now.”
The Bo Diddley-like ‘Greedy Soul’ incinerates someone who’s the “ungrateful dead”. Mega-ballad ‘For What It’s Worth’ which Liam wrote with Simon Aldred of Cherry Ghost serves up the album’s biggest chorus.
The album’s cover features an iconic new portrait of Liam, taken by the influential photographer, fashion designer and creative director Hedi Slimane.
