Speaking to Zane Lowe on his Apple Music Beats 1 show, Liam announced he’d already decided on a title for his third solo album, despite his second only coming out on September 20. Liam said, “Yeah. The next one is going to be called ‘Come On You Know’, pure positive.”
“As soon as I get the titles man, we are off.”
Isolated vocals from Liam Gallagher lifted from the classic Oasis hit ‘Supersonic’ were recently released online. The vocals come from Oasis’s headline show at Glastonbury 1995. Described as “biblical”, and “historical”, the video on Youtube was edited together by Oasis fan site user Maxi Gonzales.
