Liam Gallagher and John Squire continue to build anticipation for their collaborative album, offering fans a glimpse into their musical partnership through a compelling video and an official website. The idea of the duo working together was initially hinted at during Gallagher’s Knebworth shows last June, where he brought out the former Stone Roses guitarist to perform the iconic 1995 Oasis track ‘Champagne Supernova.’ Gallagher’s tweet from that time teased the prospect of a “super group” with Squire.
According to NME – In a September interview with Matt Wilkinson on Apple Music 1, Gallagher confirmed their collaboration, stating that they are “definitely” going to work together. Despite having tasks to address first, Gallagher expressed eagerness about the upcoming collaboration, emphasizing its seriousness. He even heightened expectations in October by suggesting that their joint LP would be “the best record since ‘Revolver,'” a bold nod to The Beatles’ seventh album.
Recently, Gallagher shared a video clip featuring Squire’s guitar prowess throughout the years, accompanied by footage of him joining Oasis on stage. In the audio, Gallagher hailed Squire as “without a doubt the best guitarist of his generation and in the world in my opinion.” The singer directed fans to gallaghersquire.com via his Instagram bio, where both artists’ names adorn the landing page, inviting fans to sign up for a mailing list for further updates.
As of now, there’s no official release date or specific announcements regarding the joint LP. Meanwhile, support acts for Gallagher’s upcoming ‘Definitely Maybe Tour’ in the UK and Ireland were recently confirmed, with indie bands Cast and The View joining the lineup. Gallagher continues to expand the tour, including a Belfast show with Kasabian and headlining slots at Reading & Leeds 2024, TRNSMT Festival in Glasgow, and more. Notably, Gallagher claimed that his brother Noel was invited to join the tour but declined participation. The ongoing revelations build excitement for what promises to be a significant chapter in Liam Gallagher and John Squire’s musical collaboration.
