Gallagher also touched on the upcoming release of his fourth solo album, Council Skies, set for release on June 2, 2023 via Sour Mash records. He said the album is about going back to the start, thinking about life and looking up at the sky. The album’s first song, Easy Now, is said to have a psychedelic influence.
The former Oasis guitarist shared his personal connection to music, describing how it provided an escape during his upbringing in poverty and unemployment. He aspires for his music to have a positive impact, to uplift and transform the listener. Gallagher has established himself as a respected figure in the industry, known for his honest and genuine approach to songwriting. With his upcoming fourth solo album, Council Skies, which is coming out soon this year, fans can anticipate more raw and authentic music as Gallagher continues to draw inspiration from his own life experiences and the world around him.
