Liam Gallagher boasts joint John Squire album is better than The Beatles' Revolver
Liam Gallagher says his upcoming album with John Squire is better than The Beatles' 'Eleanor Rigby' and 'Yellow Submarine'.
Liam Gallagher has bragged that his joint album with John Squire is "the best record" since The Beatles’ 'Revolver'.
The former Oasis frontman and Beatles fanatic and the former Stone Roses guitarist are putting out a record together next year, after Liam surprised fans by bringing him out for his pair of Knebworth shows last June to perform the Britpop group's 1995 classic 'Champagne Supernova'.
And now, Liam has teased that it's better than the 1966 record - which featured the hits 'Eleanor Rigby' and 'Yellow Submarine'.
When asked if it's true their album is coming out in 2024, he replied on X: “It’s the best record since revolver (sic)."
When another user said that was a "big statement", Liam wrote back: “What’s coming your way is bigger I’m being humble it p***** all over it."
An insider recently told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column: “Liam and John have been friends for years but things really started to take shape following his sell-out gigs at Knebworth last summer.
“Initially they just wanted to get into the studio together and see how things panned out.
“The sessions went so well that they are now set to release an album next year.
“There has been talk of doing a handful of live shows as well around the release, but nothing is set in stone with that.”
Liam had originally hinted on Twitter (before it became X): “Super group incoming LG JS. (sic)"
And speaking to Matt Wilkinson on Apple Music 1 for the 'Home Sessions' series, the 'Diamond In The Dark' singer confirmed the pair were going to work together at "some point" and he's hoping to sing on some tunes for him.
He said: "Yeah. Serious, man. But we've got things to do first, and he's got things to clear up and that. But yeah, I'm definitely going to do summat at some point."
Matt asked: "So you've actually had the conversation a little bit?"
Liam - whose return to Knebworth Park in Hertfordshire came 26 years after Oasis famously played to a record-breaking 250,000 fans over two nights at the outdoor venue - replied: "Maybe, yeah. Probably did that at Knebworth and that, I think, if I can remember anything about it.
But, no. There's talk about summat. Maybe. But no rush. He's my man, I love him. So if he's got any tunes that need singing, I'm the boy, mate. (sic)"
A few years ago, Liam said his dream supergroup would include someone out of The Stone Roses and his close friend, Richard Ashcroft, formerly of The Verve.
In 2017, he said: “The ideal ones would be the guys out of The Stone Roses. I think they just split up, so that would be good.
“[Richard] Ashcroft would be good. There’s a lot of people out there, but the majority of them are all doing their own thing.
“But, if they want to do one, give us a shout. I’ll do it.”
