Liam Gallagher thinks the BRIT Awards require someone similar to him to be in the show.
Former Oasis frontman will be performing in the prestigious ceremony held that will take place at the London’s O2 Arena on the 8th of February along with the likes of Ed Sheeran and Adele – and he’s thrilled to be “representing” rock music.
On Friday’s episode (04.02.22) of “The Chris Moyles Show’ on Radio X, he said: “I think I still perform the job, man.
“I think the BRIT Awards needs a bit of me, and I think there’s people out there that like this kind of music… I’ll be there, representing.”
Liam will release his latest record ‘C’mon , You Know’ in May and he acknowledged that the majority of the album can be described as “a bit peculiar”.
He said: “Some of it’s odd but man. I’d say that 80 percent of the album is odd however, it’s still a great.
“And 20 percent of it’s typical like this. However, we’ve gone slightly… it’s becoming slightly off-kilter with it, which is a good thing. What do I’m saying? I sound like a normal person, massive and everything.
“But you know, if you’re going to do something a little bit different, do it in these times, because if people don’t dig it, just blame it on COVID, innit? And then we’ll go back to the normal stuff on the next record.”
The hit-maker from ‘Wonderwall’ has also found it odd being a solo artist , rather than a part of a group and would “love” to be part of a supergroup similar to the style of The Traveling Wilburys, which featured Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty.
He stated: “I’d love to man absolutely however, everyone has to put their egos out to the side, know what I’m talking about but I’d certainly take that step.
“There’s plenty of great musicians who are in the middle and not really in the middle, but in the corner currently and aren’t doing much and you know what I think? I.E. John Squire. He’s a fantastic guitar player. Then there’s Nick McCabe.
“You know, I’m sure they’re doing things in their own way and all that but yeah, there’s lots of great musicians out there that should be doing more music.”
This Friday (04.02.22), Liam dropped the new single ‘Everything’s Electronic The track was written together with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and drummer Dave Grohl. on the track.
And Liam decided to work with the studio wizard Greg Kurstin for the production after having worked with him on his two first solo albums – 2017’s “As You
Were’ and 2019’s ‘Why Me? Why Not.’ and Kurstin also collaborated alongside Grohl as well as his ensemble on the album 2021 “Medicine at Midnight as well as 2017’s ‘Concrete & Gold’.
