Gal­lagher poised to work on As You Were fol­low-up

Kuwait Times - - Lifestyle -

Liam Gal­lagher is head­ing back into the stu­dio in Los An­ge­les shortly to work on the fol­low-up to his de­but al­bum. The for­mer Oa­sis star will be re­unit­ing with pro­ducer Greg Kurstin and his team of song­writ­ers to pen tracks for his sec­ond out­ing, fol­low­ing the world­wide suc­cess of ‘As You Were’, which fea­tured the hits ‘Wall of Glass’, ‘For What It’s Worth’ and ‘Pa­per Crown’. In a dig at his bit­ter ri­val and older brother Noel Gal­lagher, who he pre­vi­ously crit­i­cised for mak­ing “cos­mic pop” mu­sic, Liam wrote on Twit­ter: “The hills are live with the sound of LG I’m of to LA nxt Wk to start the fol­low up to as you were be afraid all you cos­mic pop pick­ers Dilly Dilly as you were LG x (sic).” The 45-yearold rocker, who has also slammed Noel’s French scis­sor player on sev­eral oc­ca­sions, pre­vi­ously de­scribed his plans for his sec­ond solo al­bum as “clas­sic rock” that cer­tainly isn’t “cos­mic pop” or fea­tur­ing scis­sor play­ers. Mock­ing his 50-year-old sib­ling and for­mer band­mate’s record ‘Who Built The Moon?, Liam said: “It’ll be clas­sic rock ‘n’ roll, there’ll be no cos­mic pop and no­body play­ing scis­sors.” Liam, who got a fan to peel pota­toes at his solo gig as a sly dig at Noel last year, also mocked his brother for think­ing his lat­est al­bum is “out there” and psy­che­delic. He said: “I don’t agree with a lot of the stuff he’s talk­ing about. “He’s say­ing it’s so out there and ev­ery­one’s so square they can’t get on it. “I don’t think it is out there. I hon­estly don’t and I’m not dig­ging him out. “The stuff he did with Mark Coyle be­fore we even got in Oa­sis was a lot more out there. It’s de­signer psychedelia. “And the songs ain’t that good. They’re not his best batch of songs. “He’s put a load of things round it. “He’s in the press go­ing, ‘Oh if you think this one’s out there, wait till you hear the next one’, like, mate, I don’t know what crowd you’re hang­ing about with but they must be a right bunch of squares if you think that’s out there.”
