Charlie Lightening, the director of Liam Gallagher’s upcoming feature As It Was has promised that the star’s new solo album will “blow people away.”
In an interview with NME, the director shared his feelings about Gallagher’s upcoming album and shared his favorite tracks on the record.
“It’s a continuation of As You Were,” Lightening told NME. “If you look at Definitely Maybe and What’s The Story (Morning Glory)?, one’s the more punkier one and one’s the bigger one, you know what I mean? That’s progression. It’s someone in the prime of it all. People aren’t gonna be disappointed with it. I think it’s gonna blow people away.”
He also revealed that the forthcoming lead single on the album is his favorite track by Liam Gallagher so far.
He said: “I think it’s way better than Wall Of Glass. It hits you harder. [The album] is a continuation of As You Were but it’s just that bit bigger –if you’re doing something for the second time, you’ve got more confidence behind you.
“The first single is so catchy – the middle-eight on it is just mega and then it goes into a massive chorus. It’s brilliant.”
The album will be released by September 2019 latest. And you can view the trailer for As It Was here:
