Liam Gallagher has released his experimental new single, “Better Days” today. The track, which perfectly celebrates a summer in which we can all be reunited, is taken from his highly anticipated new album, C’MON YOU KNOW? out May 27th. Listen to the song now below.
C’MON YOU KNOW? is a set full of classically instant Liam bangers topped by that iconic snarling vocal and his effortless rock star attitude. But this time there’s a twist as Liam infuses his sound with an eclectic array of new influences. It’s an approach that has made his recent tracks, the Dave Grohl-assisted “Everything’s Electric” and the album’s title track, instant fan favorites.
“Better Days” arrives ahead of Liam’s upcoming trek across the UK this summer. All tour dates can be found HERE.
Of the song, Liam says, “‘Better Days’ is the sound of the summer.”
Liam also captures that spirit with the song’s official video. Joined by his band, he takes to the roof of the historic Midland Hotel in Manchester, England for a full-throttle performance as crowds gather around to watch from nearby offices and the street. Given another cinematic touch as the sky turns psychedelic, it’s a video that nods to The Beatles’ legendary Apple Corps rooftop show. It was directed by the multiple Grammy nominee Paul Dugdale, whose credits include numerous major artists as varied as The Rolling Stones, Adele, Taylor Swift and Coldplay.
Reflecting the song’s positive spirit, Liam will donate all UK proceeds from the song to Warchild. 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 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.”
