Liam Gallagher Reveals Influences Behind New Album

Former Oasis frontman and all-round hellraiser Liam Gallagher has spoken out about his influences for his new album.

Liam Gallagher will always be a rockíníroll star. Can you really see the man swapping his swagger and mic for perhaps a smart shirt and tie combination and settling down to life as an accountant or estate agent? HmmÖ

Currently working on new material with a number of former members of Oasis, Liam Gallagher recently spoke out about which music path he is following. Speaking to New York radio station RXP the singer named T Rex and David Bowie as the main inspirations behind the new record.

With mates Andy Bell, Gem Archer and Chris Sharrock in tow, the group are currently going through writing sessions. Liam plans to head into the studio next month, with the album set for release this summer.
Speaking to the radio station, Gallagher had this to say: "Andy and Gem are on fire at the moment. There's a bit of T-Rex and Bowie on there, Iím telling you there's a good mix of psychedelia but thereís some good rock 'n' roll tunes on there".

Continuing, Liam Gallagher revealed his plans for the new album. "We're going to record halfway through April, we've got three weeks to do some tunes and if it's all cool we'll go back in June and finish it off" he said. "I'd like to have a tune out in October and then put another one out after Christmas and then the album in the summer."

The singer remained tight-lipped on the subject of his brother Noel Gallgher: "He'll go and do his thing and we'll go and do our thing and it'll be an exciting time for music not just in England but worldwide," he said.

The ex Oasis frontman of course couldnít resist the cheeky dig at his brother saying: "Noel's record will be good and ours will be better."

We Were Promised Jetpacks - The More I Sleep The Less I Dream (Album Review)
Thu 27 Sep 2018
Album four from Edinburgh's We Were Promised Jetpacks is, in their own words, about going back to basics. Since 2014’s ‘Unravelling’ they’ve changed management and label, both potential pitfalls, while recording was undertaken in the US with producer Jonathan Low. Running alongside these changes on ‘The More I Sleep The Less I Dream’ is the switch back to their original four man configuration and something approximating the style of their early releases.

Remix albums don’t always work. The best examples refresh and reveal elements of the original songs, giving them new life and often broadening their appeal. When they fail, it is often because the tracks lack the integrity and consistency of the source material.
