|Today, Liam Gallagher continues to amplify anticipation for the May 27th release of his third studio album C’MON YOU KNOW with its larger-than-life first single “Everything’s Electric,” co-written by Dave Grohl (who also performs drums on the track) and produced by multi-GRAMMY Award winner Greg Kurstin [Adele, Harry Styles, Foo Fighters].
Liam Gallagher and Dave Grohl first met many years ago when Foo Fighters played with Oasis on tour. They’ve maintained a mutual admiration ever since, while speculation about a possible collaboration between the pair has risen in recent years. To craft the song, they melded the thunderous dynamics of Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” with the spiralling tension and danger of The Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter.” With raw, rhythmic phrasing, this is as close as Liam’s iconic snarl comes to rapping and that punk-meets-hip-hop attack is underlined by boisterous bass. Meanwhile, slide guitar, piano flourishes and Liam’s haunting backing vocals pay tribute to arguably The Stones’ finest moment.
C’MON YOU KNOW follows the huge success of Liam’s previous studio albums As You Were (2017) and Why Me? Why Not. (2019), which established his iconic status for a whole new generation. Between his triumphs as a solo artist and his phenomenal success with Oasis, Liam has spent a combined total of almost six months at #1 across eleven chart-topping albums. Next week, Liam is set to give “Everything’s Electric” its live debut at the BRIT Awards, a striking first statement of the year ahead, which also features Liam’s biggest ever solo shows this summer including his two rapidly sold-out gigs at the UK’s Knebworth Park.
Today also brings news of a range of exciting new formats for the C’MON YOU KNOW album, all of which are now available to pre-order here. Liam’s official store offers a limited-edition cassette, while three new vinyl formats are available exclusively via specific retailers. Amazon and HMV both stock their own colored vinyl editions, while a clear vinyl is also available via select independent stores.
