The ceaseless squabbles between brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher are the stuff of legend. After all, their inner tension was at the forefront of Oasis‘ hugely successful career (until being part of its inevitable dissolution, of course).
It’s no surprise, then, to find out that both Gallaghers are planning to release solo albums this fall — within weeks of each other, apparently.
In a recent interview with RadioX, Noel let it out that he will release his third full-length solo album, the follow-up to 2015’s Chasing Yesterday, in November:
“It’s coming out on the 9th of November, so I’ve been told.”
Meanwhile, Liam recently hinted at some big news, and it’ll be the debut of his solo single “Wall of Glass” this Friday, June 2. In fact, Liam’s debut solo album is titled As You Were and will be released in October, per a new feature from the NME. Liam’s been quiet for a few years, ever since his band Beady Eye called it quits after two solo of its own.
But he’s apparently ready to make some noise once again, and so it’s rather perfect timing to have his album come out within a month or so of Noel’s new one. Musically, Liam worked with the likes of Greg Kurstin (who co-wrote Adele’s “Hello,” among other hits), so it’s safe to assume As You Were will be a huge record.
So, when it comes time for Liam Gallagher to tour in support of As You Were, what might fans expect? In his NME chat he revealed plans to play plenty of Oasis songs in concert, but only ones he enjoys singing. As for the classic “Don’t Look Back in Anger,” which is normally sung by Noel, Liam won’t be performing that one … though he did say, “I sing that one in the shower every morning.”
