On Thursday, Liam Gallagher announced that he is prepping a solo LP for release in 2017. "Very excited to be signing to the mighty Warner Brothers; looking forward to making some super sweet sounds," he noted in a statement. "Keep the faith!"
Gallagher, however, doesn't want his fans to get overexcited by his return, making it clear that this is a one-off project. "I am not embarking on a solo 'career,'" the singer told Q in an interview published this week. "Everyone should know that."
"There are just 10, 11 songs I've written that are eligible to be recorded," he continued. "They've got flair, attitude, the melodies are sick and the words are fucking funny … It's a record written by me that's got all the right ingredients and sounds, well, tasty. You won't be scratching your chin. It's not Pink Floyd and it ain't Radiohead. It's chin-out music."
Gallagher is concocting this "chin-out music" with "two lads." "One's a multi-instrumentalist and he can play anything," the singer explained to Q. "Not that there's much to play on these songs. One guitar, acoustic. One guitar, electric. Drum kit, keyboard … That's your lot. Proper sparse, really pumping. How it should be."
Gallagher's band Beady Eye — which contains former member of Oasis — last released an album in 2013. This October, Oasis will reissue their 1997 record Be Here Now.
