Liam Gallagher’s first two solo U.K. #1 studio albums – As You Were and Why Me? Why Not. – maximized the potential of a simple formula: team Liam’s era-defining voice up with some trusted collaborators, and add some fresh impetus to his classic ‘60s and rock ‘n’ roll influences. But third time around and there’s a twist in the tale with his new album C’MON YOU KNOW, which is out now and is available HERE. Today also sees Liam release the live album Down By The River Thames.

Initially inspired by regular collaborator Andrew Wyatt’s off-kilter bursts of creativity, C’MON YOU KNOW instead takes a few weirder, wilder turns. Of course, Liam being Liam, there’s a touch of The Beatles and The Stones, but a quick scan of early comparisons reveals references to everything from T-Rex and Hendrix to The Polyphonic Spree and the Beastie Boys. And it’s a record that’s further colored by some unexpected collaborators, including Dave Grohl, Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig and Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

As Liam summarized in an interview with The Sunday Times, “It’s a bit peculiar in places, which is good: 80 per cent madness and 20 per cent classic. If you’re going to start doing stuff like that on your third album, it helps if there’s a bit of Covid about. Because if it doesn’t take off, and people go, ‘I’m not sure about this, it’s a bit weird,’ we can blame it on the virus and go back to the classic stuff.”

That 80/20 split is demonstrated by the songs that have previewed the album. “Everything’s Electric” (his highest charting UK solo single to date) is the result of Liam challenging Greg Kurstin and Dave Grohl to write a song that melds the thunderous dynamics of Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” with the spiralling tension of The Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter.” The record’s title track has Liam’s immediately addictive edge, but it’s full of unexpected sonic touches: surging Motown-tinged gospel backing vocals, shrieking saxophone from Ezra Koenig, and vintage Moog synths heightening the sonic maelstrom. And the current single “Better Days” is a shot of sunshine dopamine in audio form, as thunderous, ‘90s-style big beats add jet-fuelled propulsion to a classic festival-filling anthem.

That exploratory feel drifts in at moments throughout the record, from the plaintive children’s choir that introduces the opening song “More Power” to the sweeping psychedelia of the closing “Oh Sweet Children.” Along the way, it takes in Liam’s love for sweet harmonies and tender balladry with “Too Good For Giving Up,” the unpredictable, cinematic mini-epic “Moscow Rules” (disclaimer: it’s not in any way in support of Russia) and the punk-dub of “I’m Free.”

While Liam Gallagher on stage is pretty much the same force of nature that he was almost thirty years ago, C’MON YOU KNOW is full of lyrics which are more likely to extend a comforting hug than instigate conflict. It’s most apparent with the title track’s admittance that “I’m sick of acting like I’m tough” – an idea he also touches upon in “Diamond In The Dark.” “More Power” offers the hope that all those things that don’t work out as you planned will ultimately be for the best, while “Better Days” is pure romanticism. The album’s final words say it all as he signs off with “I can only offer you my love.”

His best and most experimental solo album yet.” (NME)

“A touching and delicate triumph.” (Rolling Stone)

“There’s a real creative confidence on display here… Another number 1 surely beckons.” (Mojo)

Liam Gallagher

Liam Gallagher
achieved both fame and notoriety as the lead singer of British rock band Oasis, who hit their commercial peak in the '90s during the height of Brit-pop. Following the breakup of the band, he went on to form Beady Eye, and then began a career as a solo artist. Gallagher was born in Burnage, Manchester in 1972 to his Irish parents, Thomas and Peggy Gallagher. Liam, the youngest of three, had two older older brothers, Noel and Paul. Having suffered abuse at the hands of their father, both Noel and Liam went on to have troubled teenage years. Although he displayed little interest in music early on, in his late teens he began listening to the Beatles, the Who, the Stone Roses, and the Kinks. It was at this time that his lifelong admiration for John Lennon developed (he later named his son Lennon as a tribute to the late Beatle).

Gallagher joined his school friend Paul McGuigan's band the Rain as the lead singer, along with guitarist Paul Arthurs. Meanwhile, Liam's brother Noel had been touring the U.S with Inspiral Carpets as their roadie, and upon his return, he guided Liam's fledgling band toward a more successful future. Featuring Noel as chief guitarist and songwriter, the newly renamed Oasis went on to secure a record deal and make their debut album, Definitely Maybe, in 1994. Upon its release, it became the fastest-selling debut album in Britain to date. As the band's music began to make headlines, so did Liam, as the tabloid press speculated about his drug use and volatile behavior, which included seemingly endless spats with his brother. Just a year later, the band released (What's the Story) Morning Glory?, which eclipsed their debut's staggering popularity. That same year, Oasis went head to head with fellow Brit-poppers Blur when both bands released singles on the same day. Blur emerged victorious with "Country House" while Oasis' "Roll with It" languished in second place. The chart war, along with the tabloid press, fueled the rivalry between the bands, pitching them as opposing forces within the Brit-pop scene -- working-class northerners Oasis versus middle-class southerners Blur.

All the while Liam continued to dominate the press on his own, which included an assault charge while on tour in Australia. Oasis' fourth record, 2000's Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, would feature Gallagher's songwriting debut. "Little James" was an ode to his then-wife Patsy Kensit's son with Simple Minds' frontman Jim Kerr. It was a trend that would continue, as over the band's final three albums, 2002's Heathen Chemistry, 2005's Don't Believe the Truth, and 2008's Dig Out Your Soul, Gallagher emerged from his brother's songwriting shadow to contribute more of his own compositions, like "Songbird" and "I'm Outta Time." Along with an increased input to the band's records, Liam continued to make headlines with his extracurricular activities, including a 2002 fight in a Munich bar that left him with several broken teeth. Relations between Liam and Noel continued to be fractious, and in 2008 they reached a nadir that resulted in Noel leaving the band.

The following year, Gallagher announced he had formed a new group with former members of Oasis. He also launched his own clothing brand, Pretty Green, named after a track by the Jam, and featuring the by then classic Gallagher getup of parkas and desert boots. By 2010, the brand had its own flagship store on London's celebrated Carnaby Street. In 2011, Beady Eye's debut record, Different Gear, Still Speeding, was released. The band headlined a Japan tsunami relief concert at London's Brixton Academy, and also supported the Stone Roses in 2012. Beady Eye presented their second record, BE, in 2013 and toured in support of the album, but by 2014 Gallagher had announced via Twitter that the group had disbanded. In the interim, he very publicly pursued the ongoing feud with his brother by trashing Noel's High Flying Birds project, making an Oasis reunion ever more unlikely.

Having previously dismissed any suggestion of a solo career via his Twitter account, Gallagher made a U-turn in 2016 and announced he would in fact be releasing a solo record. As You Were was set for release in 2017, and lead single "Wall of Glass" arrived in May of that year. Following the terrorist bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, the singer organized a benefit concert at Old Trafford Cricket Ground and Gallagher made a surprise appearance, playing Oasis classics "Live Forever" and "Rock 'n' Roll Star" alongside Coldplay's Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland.
