Liam Gallagher fans stoked in anticipation of the ex-Oasis frontman's first-ever solo tour of North America can whet their appetite with a new performance video for his brand new single “Greedy Soul.” The song is the latest release from his debut solo album As You Were, which drops Oct. 6 via Warner/Parlophone.
Spin reports on Sept. 28 that the controversial British pop-rocker filmed the new video in London during a recording session at Air Studios. A live video for Gallagher's previous single “For What It's Worth” was also shot at this facility, which was co-founded by former Beatles' producer Sir George Martin.
The “Wonderwall” hitmaker gave “Greedy Soul” its stage debut at a hometown gig on May 31 in Manchester, United Kingdom, at O2 Ritz and the song has since become a setlist staple. “Greedy Soul” received its television debut Tuesday, during an appearance of BBC Two's “Later... with Jools Holland” and was released as a single Wednesday.
In the 3:41 minute, drummer Dan McDougall opens the frenetic rocker with a pounding backbeat before ex-Beady Eye guitarist Jay Mehler lays down the song's signature riff to set up the first verse. The raw intro leads to an explosive chorus which features a four-piece horn section with Gallagher singing, “And it's a long way down/When you're the wrong way round/And now it's all too much/I've got the Midas touch.”
As You Were features 12 tracks in the standard edition, including the previous singles “Wall of Glass,” “Chinatown” and “For What It's Worth.” Fans can preorder the album here in a variety of bundles in CD, vinyl, as well as digital formats and check out the performance video for “Greedy Soul” above.
Gallagher will make a one-off stop in the U.S. on Oct. 7 in San Bernardino, Calif., as part of Cal Jam 2017 but will return the following month to launch his North American tour on Nov. 13 in San Francisco at The Warfield.
