Liam Gallagher’s solo album now has a name:  As You Were.

The former Oasis and Beady Eye frontman tweeted the title, but he’s keeping us in the dark on its release date. 

Gallagher’s solo debut is expected to drop in 2017 and will be the first through a pair of new deals – a publishing arrangement with Warner/Chappell and a recording contract with its sister company Warner Brother Records -- both announced last year. 

Speaking in a recent edition of Q, Gallagher boasted his new songs had flair and attitude. “The melodies are sick and the words are fucking funny,” he said. “[It] sounds well tasty. You won’t be scratching your chin. It’s not Pink Floyd and it ain’t Radiohead. It’s chin-out music.”

Gallagher became every bit the rock ‘n’ roll star he sang about in the opening track of Oasis’ legendary debut album from 1994, Definitely Maybe. The English outfit went on to smash sales records, bag eight U.K. No. 1 singles and six BRIT Awards before disbanding in 2009. The extraordinary early stages of Oasis’ career was explored in Mat Whitecross’s celebrated 2016 documentary, Oasis: Supersonic. Gallagher’s next project, Beady Eye, enjoyed two U.K. top 5 albums before it split in 2014.
