Liam Gallagher has shared a new single called ‘Better Days’ – you can listen to it below.

The sunkissed, optimistic track serves as the latest preview of the former Oasis frontman’s third solo album, ‘C’mon You Know’, which comes out on May 27 via Warner.

Over fast-paced filtered drums, Gallagher looks ahead to a brighter future and “a new world yet to come” before calling on the listener to “believe me, yeah” as its chorus reaches soaring stadium heights.

“It’s the sound of the summer,” LG wrote on social media to announce ‘Better Days’. Produced by Andrew Wyatt and Greg Kurstin, the song credits Tove Lo as a co-writer alongside Gallagher, Wyatt and others. Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner also contributed to the track.

The single arrives with an accompanying official video that sees Gallagher and his band perform on a Manchester rooftop. Tune in here:

Last month, Gallagher revealed to fans via Twitter that he was shooting a music video “up north”; the following day, he was spotted filming on the roof of Manchester’s Midland Hotel. He subsequently shared the ‘C’mon You Know’ title track, the follow-up to lead single ‘Everything’s Electric’.

LG will showcase his upcoming record on a run of huge outdoor UK shows this summer, including a gig at the home of his beloved Manchester City and a highly-anticipated return to Knebworth, where he’ll play two nights.

In other news, Gallagher has announced that he will release his ‘Down By The River Thames’ performance as a live album. He recorded the set as part of a special live-stream in December 2020, when full-scale shows were still prohibited under COVID lockdown laws.

Announcing the record, LG wrote: “Made up that Down by the River Thames finally gets released it was a celestial gig dare I say BIBLICAL even enjoy and remember RNR is here to stay it will never DIE C’mon you know LG x.”

Both ‘C’mon You Know’ and ‘Down By The River Thames’ will arrive on May 27 via Warner.
