Info zu Why Me? Why Not. (Deluxe Edition)

"Blicken wir den Tatsachen ins Gesicht: ohne mich ist es langweilig“, sagt Liam Gallagher – und schickt zwei Jahre nach seinem Solo-Debütalbum "As You Were" neue Musik ins Rennen: "Shockwave" heißt der erste Vorgeschmack auf sein kommendes Album "Why Me? Why Not." – ein Track, der mit einem Monster-Riff zum Leben erwacht und Einflüsse von The Who und T. Rex durchklingen lässt, bevor Liam mit der ihm typischen Giftigkeit und Präzision in eine ausufernde Hook explodiert. "You sold me right down the river, you had to hold me back”, singt er, "you could’ve looked for the sunshine, but you had to paint the whole thing black”.

Liam Gallagher schrieb "Shockwave“ mit zwei der wichtigen Kreativpartner hinter dem "As You Were“-Album: Andrew Wyatt, der in diesem Jahr als Co-Schreiber von "Shallow“ für den Film "A Star Is Born“ den Oscar in der Kategorie „Best Original Song gewann, und der mehrfach Grammy-dekorierte Greg Kurstin, der den Track zudem produzierte. Aufgenommen wurde er in Los Angeles und den RAK Studios in London.

"Shockwave“ läutet einen geschäftigen Sommer für den ehemaligen Oasis- und Beady-Eye-Frontmann ein. Letzten Mittwoch spielte er eine – natürlich restlos ausverkaufte – Underplay-Show in der Hackney Round Chapel – sicherlich das intimste London-Venue, in dem er gespielt hat, seit Oasis einst die englische Hauptstadt eroberten. Am Donnerstag feierte die Doku "As It Was“ Premiere im Londoner Alexandra Palace Theatre (siehe Trailer unten). Am 26. Juni spielt Gallagher eine ausverkaufte Eden Sessions-Show und am 29. Juni auf der Pyramid Stage des Glastonbury Festivals.

Liam Gallagher

Liam Gallagher
achieved both fame and notoriety as the lead singer of British rock band Oasis, who hit their commercial peak in the '90s during the height of Brit-pop. Following the breakup of the band, he went on to form Beady Eye, and then began a career as a solo artist. Gallagher was born in Burnage, Manchester in 1972 to his Irish parents, Thomas and Peggy Gallagher. Liam, the youngest of three, had two older older brothers, Noel and Paul. Having suffered abuse at the hands of their father, both Noel and Liam went on to have troubled teenage years. Although he displayed little interest in music early on, in his late teens he began listening to the Beatles, the Who, the Stone Roses, and the Kinks. It was at this time that his lifelong admiration for John Lennon developed (he later named his son Lennon as a tribute to the late Beatle).

Gallagher joined his school friend Paul McGuigan's band the Rain as the lead singer, along with guitarist Paul Arthurs. Meanwhile, Liam's brother Noel had been touring the U.S with Inspiral Carpets as their roadie, and upon his return, he guided Liam's fledgling band toward a more successful future. Featuring Noel as chief guitarist and songwriter, the newly renamed Oasis went on to secure a record deal and make their debut album, Definitely Maybe, in 1994. Upon its release, it became the fastest-selling debut album in Britain to date. As the band's music began to make headlines, so did Liam, as the tabloid press speculated about his drug use and volatile behavior, which included seemingly endless spats with his brother. Just a year later, the band released (What's the Story) Morning Glory?, which eclipsed their debut's staggering popularity. That same year, Oasis went head to head with fellow Brit-poppers Blur when both bands released singles on the same day. Blur emerged victorious with "Country House" while Oasis' "Roll with It" languished in second place. The chart war, along with the tabloid press, fueled the rivalry between the bands, pitching them as opposing forces within the Brit-pop scene -- working-class northerners Oasis versus middle-class southerners Blur.

All the while Liam continued to dominate the press on his own, which included an assault charge while on tour in Australia. Oasis' fourth record, 2000's Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, would feature Gallagher's songwriting debut. "Little James" was an ode to his then-wife Patsy Kensit's son with Simple Minds' frontman Jim Kerr. It was a trend that would continue, as over the band's final three albums, 2002's Heathen Chemistry, 2005's Don't Believe the Truth, and 2008's Dig Out Your Soul, Gallagher emerged from his brother's songwriting shadow to contribute more of his own compositions, like "Songbird" and "I'm Outta Time." Along with an increased input to the band's records, Liam continued to make headlines with his extracurricular activities, including a 2002 fight in a Munich bar that left him with several broken teeth. Relations between Liam and Noel continued to be fractious, and in 2008 they reached a nadir that resulted in Noel leaving the band.

The following year, Gallagher announced he had formed a new group with former members of Oasis. He also launched his own clothing brand, Pretty Green, named after a track by the Jam, and featuring the by then classic Gallagher getup of parkas and desert boots. By 2010, the brand had its own flagship store on London's celebrated Carnaby Street. In 2011, Beady Eye's debut record, Different Gear, Still Speeding, was released. The band headlined a Japan tsunami relief concert at London's Brixton Academy, and also supported the Stone Roses in 2012. Beady Eye presented their second record, BE, in 2013 and toured in support of the album, but by 2014 Gallagher had announced via Twitter that the group had disbanded. In the interim, he very publicly pursued the ongoing feud with his brother by trashing Noel's High Flying Birds project, making an Oasis reunion ever more unlikely.

Having previously dismissed any suggestion of a solo career via his Twitter account, Gallagher made a U-turn in 2016 and announced he would in fact be releasing a solo record. As You Were was set for release in 2017, and lead single "Wall of Glass" arrived in May of that year. Following the terrorist bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, the singer organized a benefit concert at Old Trafford Cricket Ground and Gallagher made a surprise appearance, playing Oasis classics "Live Forever" and "Rock 'n' Roll Star" alongside Coldplay's Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland.
