Liam Gallagher announces major tour alongside new single ‘The River’
Liam Gallagher has announced a huge UK tour to coincide with the release of his latest single ‘The River’.
The single will be featured on Gallagher’s eagerly anticipated new album, Why My? Why Not, a follow-up to 2017’s debut solo album As You Were.
“I want the second album to be a step-up, because the hardest thing to do is to make something the same, only better, Gallagher said of the album in a statement. “So that’s what we’ve done. It’s a better record than As You Were. Which is saying something, as that was epic, wasn’t it?”
Liam Gallagher UK tour dates: November 11: Cardiff Motorpoint Arena November 12: Birmingham Arena November 14: Aberdeen P&J Live November 15: Glasgow SSE Hydro November 17: Newcastle Utilita Arena November 18: Sheffield FlyDSA Arena November 20: Manchester Arena November 21: Liverpool M&S Bank Arena November 24: Dublin 3 Arena November 26: Nottingham Motorpoint Arena November 28: London O2 Arena
The new single was co-written by Gallagher alongside Mike Snow and singer Andrew Wyatt and is available to stream below.
Gallagher added of the song: “There’s one called ‘A River’ which is absolutely a proper beast of a tune. Don’t think it’ll get on the radio ‘cause it’s too heavy, but if someone wants to play it, play it. But that’s a tune.”
“Yeah it’s heavy man. It is HEA-VY. Like heavy, as in makes you wanna, it’s like a bulldozer man. Heavier than that. Then there’s one called ‘Once’ which is more of a ballad-y kind of a Pink Floyd, Bowie kind of thing which is mega.”
Gallagher then turned to conversation to Molly Moorish, his formerly estranged daughter, his child with Lisa Moorish who recently began a relationship with the former Oasis singer: “Then there’s a couple of little, you know… there’s one that I’ve done for my daughter Molly called ‘Now That I’ve Found You’,” he added.
“Not that she was lost or anything, or she was captured by the Taliban or anything like that. But it’s got a ‘now that you’re in my life’ kinda vibe. It’s cool. It’s nice.”
