Gallagher and Squire have given hints about the upcoming record, which is due out March 1. “I can’t wait for people to hear the album,” said Gallagher. “I think the people that are into the Stone Roses and Oasis and that kinda thing, I think they’ll fucking love it. It’s spiritual, it’s crucial.”
Meanwhile, Squire said: “It was really inspiring to have those Knebworth gigs fresh in my mind as I started writing. Then it was a case of trying to steer it away from all being too rocky, and trying to mix up the sentiments as well.
“I like the way that in some parts, it’s quite melancholic and it can make you well up, but there are other parts that are kind of irreverent, rude or crude. There’s a little bit of everything in there, I think it’s a really good mix. I had a hunch that we’d sound good together, but I wasn’t prepared for it to be such a good fit.”
Gallagher recently addressed questions about whether he or Squire would play Oasis or Stone Roses songs on their tour. He told Radio X: “Nah, not doing any of that.”
“It’s gonna be just this album and maybe a few covers that we might get round to doing, but it won’t be our other bands and that, ‘cause that’s naff,” he continued. “No, them songs mean too much to me man for me to be howling over. I wouldn’t mind howling over the Oasis ones and that.”
You might be able to catch Gallagher at Reading & Leeds this year, as he is due to play Oasis’ ‘Definitely Maybe’ in full when he headlines on the Friday date this August. Saturday’s Reading date has sadly sold out – Lana Del Rey and Fred Again.. are due to perform as headliners.
The performances will follow a UK and Ireland tour celebrating the classic record’s 30th anniversary. You can find any remaining tickets here.
