Nearly eight years after Oasis disbanded in 2009, former lead singer Liam Gallagher is launching his first solo album “As You Were.” His video “Chinatown” (above) was just released as the second single off it.
In the video, Liam pensively strolls through the streets of London. He stops by a graffiti-covered overpass that pays homage to the victims of the Manchester terrorist attack, then regards the Palace of Westminster, watches the sunset, and finally passes several busy restaurants and markets at night.
While “Chinatown” is on the melodic side, Gallagher’s other lead track “Wall of Glass” is more raucous - check out the video for that single (below). Four of the songs off “As You Were,” including “Wall of Glass,” “Come Back To Me,” “Paper Crown,” and “Doesn’t Have To Be That Way,” were produced by Greg Kurstin (Tegan and Sara, Adele).
In a statement, Gallagher described his new bare-bones album as having "the Lennon ‘Cold Turkey’ vibe. The Stones, the classics. But done my way, now."
Liam Gallagher's debut solo LP “As You Were” drops October 6.
