Liam Gallagher has released a lyric video for his new song “Everything’s Electric”, which features Dave Grohl on drums.
The Foo Fighters frontman co-wrote the track, intended to reflect the energy of the Beastie Boys and the Rolling Stones, and it was produced by Greg Kurstin, who has worked with both artists before. He will appear on Gallagher’s upcoming solo album Come on you know when it arrives on May 22. The video can be seen below.
“It opens the doors to what’s next,” Gallagher recently told Radio X of the song. “We had finished the album, and I’m going to the pub now, because I had worked really hard. Then I get a phone call, ‘Don’t go to the pub just yet – they have a song for you.’ So I’m like, ‘For fu–– go ahead, then.’ So I hear it and I’m like, ‘Yeah man, that’s cool, that’ll fit on the album.’ I hold back the drinking…then we go back to the studio the next day and tape it in. Dave was in LA with Greg and that, and I was in sunny London.
He said of the album, “Some parts are weird, man. I’d say 80% of the record is kind of peculiar, but still good. And 20% is pretty classic.” He added: “There’s a cover…called John Lennon’s ‘Bless You’; it’s pretty good….It’s very sexy, very Marvin Gaye-ish, you know what I mean? Very sweet and that. That’s what happened when you didn’t ‘I don’t drink dairy or smoke. I’m Marvin Gaye!’ He insisted he sounded “normal and mega and all that” on the album, adding: “If you’re going to do something a little different, do it in these times – because if people don’t like it, just blame it on COVID! And then we’ll go back to normal things on the next album.”
Confirming his appearance at the annual BRIT Awards in London this weekend, Gallagher noted: “I think I still do the job, man. I think the BRIT Awards need a bit of me, and I think there are people out there who love this kind of music…I’ll be there, representing.”
