Liam Gallagher shares new single Better Days
By Classic Pop | April 22, 2022
Liam Gallagher has shared the latest single from his forthcoming new album C’Mon You Know.
Better Days, says the singer, “is the sound of the summer.”
The video sees Liam and his band filmed on the roof of Manchester’s Midland Hotel, and is inspired by The Beatles’ legendary Apple Corps rooftop show. It was directed by the multiple Grammy nominee Paul Dugdale, whose credits include numerous artists as varied as The Rolling Stones, Adele, Taylor Swift and Coldplay.
Liam will donate all UK proceeds from the song to War Child for the rest of this year. 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 in war zones across the world.
Rich Clarke, Head of War Child Records, says: “We could not be more grateful to Liam for his incredible, continued support for the charity. With us since the earliest days of our music-focused fundraising almost 27 years ago, Liam’s contributions have extended to putting exclusive Oasis tracks on our classic HELP and 1 Love albums to donating £1 from every ticket sold on his 2019 UK tour. Now, in these most challenging times, Liam’s generosity stretches further still, to help us reach more children living conflict around 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, Paul McCartney). It also features guitar courtesy of Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
Better Days, Everything’s Electric and the title track will all feature on the C’Mon You Know album, which 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 songs.
Both Down By The River Thames and C’Mon You Know are available to pre-order HERE in a selection of bundles. These include both albums on CD (£11.99) or standard vinyl (£34.99), as well as a bundle featuring the C’Mon You Know cassette and the Down By The River Thames vinyl (£24.99).
Liam has just announced an intimate show at Blackburn’s King George’s Hall to launch his new trainer design LG2SPZL, a collaboration with adidas Spezial – follow #LG2SPZL and #adidasspezial for the latest updates on its launch.
