LIAM GALLAGHER | SHARES BRAND NEW TRACK "CHINATOWN" 

Tracklisting Revealed For Debut Solo Album As You Were

Set for Release October 6 on Warner Bros. Records/Parlophone

June 30, 2017 (Burbank, CA) - The return of Liam Gallagher gathered pace with a sensational show at Glastonbury last weekend. NMEdescribed it as "a swaggering, emotional moment," "worth the hype" and "one of Glastonbury's finest moments," before concluding, "never underestimate the man, he was made for moments like this."Between Glastonbury, his recent sold-out underplay tour of the U.K./Ireland, and an emotional performance at One Love Manchester, Liam Gallagher has demonstrated that he's back to his very best.

Now Gallagher continues to build anticipation for the October 6 release of his debut solo album As You Were by sharing the brand new track "Chinatown" and revealing the album's tracklisting. Click here for single and album information.

 

In contrast to the punchy first single "Wall Of Glass," "Chinatown" is an atmospheric, psychedelic slow burner in which he utilises the more tender side of his inimitable vocal stylings. As a pairing, the two tracks hint at what to expect from As You Were, with Gallagher adding a modern sheen to his passion for a wide range of influences from the 60s and 70s.

 

After Gallagher ignited the writing process with the heavy duty soul-rock of "Bold," As You Were was recorded in two locations. Greg Kurstinperformed all of the instruments on the four songs that he produced in Los Angeles ("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.

 

"I didn't want to be reinventing anything or going off on a space jazz odyssey," says Gallagher. "It's the Lennon 'Cold Turkey' vibe, The Stones, the classics. But done my way, now."

 

One of the most striking aspects of As You Were is that all the songs have a purpose. There's no flab, nothing to cut. They all feel directed at something or someone, setting the record straight or getting his side of the story over, be that the swinging, Bo Diddley-like "Greedy Soul," which incinerates someone who's the "ungrateful dead" or the mega-ballad "For What It's Worth," which serves up the album's biggest chorus.
