What can we expect from Liam Gallagher’s eagerly anticipated new album C’MON YOU KNOW? A set full of classically instant Liam bangers topped by that iconic snarling vocal and his effortless rock star attitude. But this time there’s a twist as Liam infuses his sound with an eclectic array of new influences. It’s an approach that has made his recent tracks, the Top 20 hit “Everything’s Electric” and the album’s title track, instant fan favourites.
Liam today shares his new single Better Days which takes that experimental touch to a new level. It’s a shot of sunshine dopamine in audio form, as thunderous, ‘90s-style big beats add jet-fuelled propulsion to a classic crowd-pleasing anthem.
Reflecting the song’s positive spirit, Liam will donate all income from the song to Warchild. The charity aims to protect, educate and stand up for the rights of children living through conflict, and campaigns on the root causes of conflict to help create a safer future for children across the world.
Better Days was written by Liam with his regular collaborators, the Grammy-winning Andrew Wyatt and Michael Tighe. Andrew Wyatt produced the song with Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sir Paul McCartney). It also features guitar courtesy of Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
Better Days, Everything’s Electric and the title track will all feature on the C’MON YOU KNOW album, which is perfectly positioned to become Liam’s fourth UK #1 solo album when it is released on May 27th.
That same day will also see Liam release the Down By The River Thames live album. Originally streamed in December 2020, the show became one of the most memorable performances of the lockdown era. Liam followed the precedent set by the Sex Pistols and The Clash, and decided to hit the River Thames, armed with a boatload of attitude, a phenomenal live band (including Bonehead) and an arsenal of classic songs.
