After last night’s emotional homecoming show at Manchester’s O2 Ritz (click here for a clip of ‘Live Forever’), Liam Gallagher can now share his debut solo track ‘Wall Of Glass’ as well as its accompanying video. Premiered as MistaJam’s Hottest Record in the World on Radio 1, ‘Wall Of Glass’ is the first to be taken from his forthcoming album ‘As You Were’.
If you had to make an equation of all the elements that made the early Oasis singles so apocalyptically good – huge waves of guitar hooks, a melody you can’t shake, a thunderous rhythm and Liam Gallagher’s voice delivering an unbelievably catchy chorus – then ‘Wall Of Glass’ would be the result. Boosted by a contemporary, bass-heavy production, it’s a track that provides a fresh new angle to Liam’s sound while maintaining the traits that made him such an influential artist.
With undeniable power and a yearning menace, it’s hard to recall a time that Liam has sung better – it’s like hearing him for the first time.
Directed by François Rousselet (The Rolling Stones’ ‘Ride ‘Em On Down’, Jack White’s ‘Lazaretto’), the video for ‘Wall Of Glass’ further demonstrates that Liam’s iconic rock ‘n’ roll star swagger remains as compelling as ever before.
Liam’s sold-out underplay tour continues tomorrow at the Electric Brixton before heading to the Olympia Theatre in Dublin (June 10th) and GlasgowBarrowlands (June 11th). His live band features Mike Moore (guitar), Jay Mehler (guitar), Drew McConnell (bass), Dan McDougall (drums) and Christian Madden (keys).
