Liam Gallagher is gearing up to release his highly anticipated third solo studio album, C’MON YOU KNOW. Anticipation for the album was ignited with the lead single “Everything’s Electric,” and now, he has unleashed the album’s title track, “C’MON YOU KNOW”, featuring Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig on saxophone. Listen to the track now below.
While “C’MON YOU KNOW” pulsates with the traits that have made Liam such an iconic figure – a raucous rock ‘n’ roll anthem topped by his signature snarl – it’s also a strong step forward in terms of both attitude and audio. Musically it’s layered with unexpected sonic touches: surging Motown-tinged gospel backing vocals, shrieking saxophone from Ezra Koenig, and vintage Moog synths heightening the sonic maelstrom. Liam’s lyrics also come from a fresh place: rather than being combative, his words brim with positivity and the joy of being reunited with friends, family and fans. As he openly admits, “I’m sick of being tough.”
The song was written solely by Liam and was produced by his regular creative collaborator, the Grammy Award winner Andrew Wyatt.
May 27 will also see Liam release the Down By The River Thames live album. Originally streamed on December 5, 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 classic songs. Acclaim included a four-star review from i, who declared the show to be, “A reminder of why the younger Gallagher is now the fans’ favourite.”
Both Down By The River Thames and C’MON YOU KNOW are available to pre-order HERE in a selection of value-for-money bundles. These include both albums on CD or standard vinyl, as well as a bundle featuring the C’MON YOU KNOW cassette and the … River Thames vinyl.
