Liam Gallagher has given a Black Friday gift to fans in the form of a brand new single "Come Back to Me.” The track is the latest single from the ex-Oasis star's chart-topping solo album As You Were, which hit shelves Oct. 6 via Warner/Parlophone.
The “Wonderwall” hitmaker premiered the official video for “Come Back to Me” on Nov. 24 via NME in the midst of his first-ever North American solo tour, which launched on Nov. 13 in San Francisco at The Warfield.The official video was directed by film director Shane Meadows and the footage was shot in a small club in Glasgow, Scotland, called King Tut's.
“Come Back to Me” is the fifth single from the solo effort. The release is the follow up to the previous singles “Wonderwall,” “Chinatown,” “For What It's Worth” and “Greedy Soul.”
The 3:39 minute black & white clip opens with an exterior of the nightclub with the muffled sounds of rowdy Scottish fans banging on tables and chanting. As credits role, the ex-Beady Eye star makes his appearance to the strains of an acoustic guitar intro and howls of joy from the audience.
Meadows intersperses live club footage with psychedelic split-screen shots and crowd reactions, using quick edits and various camera angles to get a retro-sixties effect. As the band climbs aboard the mid-tempo ode to separation, Gallagher delivers the first verse, singing, “I've gone so far/My hands/Are hot/But I wanna touch/'Cause I know you're lonely.”
As You Were is available to order here in a variety of bundles in CD, vinyl, as well as digital formats. Fans can check out the official video for “Come Back to Me” above.
