Liam Gallagher has teased a major new announcement.

The former Oasis frontman posted on Twitter today (January 19) to ignite speculation among his 3.5 million followers with a cryptic post, written in his own inimitable style, that predictably included a dig at his brother, Noel

“Big announcement tmoz and I mean BIG,” said Gallagher. “Bigger than my nose bigger than rkids rite said Fred f***ing massive so stay tuned LG x”

The rock icon’s third solo album, ‘C’mon You Know’, has already been announced for a May 22 release, as has as an accompanying UK tour for the following month, which will see him return to Knebworth for two sold-out nights. Accordingly, guesswork as to what this new dispatch might be was rife in the replies.

Asked cheekily if he’ll be following in Noel’s footsteps and opening for U2, a band he’s previously dismissed as “corporate muck”, Gallagher replied: “Stop smoking taytos they should be supporting ME.” He also took a further swipe at his brother by describing Matt Morgan’s Funny How? podcast, on which the elder Gallagher is a frequent guest, as “for AZBINS”, as well as confirming that he has yet to watch Peter Jackson’s Beatles documentary, ‘Get Back’: “Still too or to or 2 or two scared”.

Gallagher did not elaborate on what he finds frightening about Jackson’s three-part series. Upon announcing ‘C’mon You Know’ last October, he told Chris Moyles on Radio X that one song, ‘I Wish I Had More Power’, is dedicated to Noel, as with ‘Paper Crown’ on his first solo record, ‘As You Were’. “Yeah, it’s a naughty little tune, but it’s lovely,” he said of the new track.

No music from ‘C’mon You Know’ has yet been shared. Gallagher will be joined by Kasabian at both Knebworth shows as the Leicester rockers continue to adjust to life without former frontman Tom Meighan; Michael Kiwanuka, Fat White Family and Goat Girl are also confirmed to support on the second night on June 4.
