Liam Gallagher has released a new single “Greedy Soul,” following a live TV performance of the song on Sept. 26 during an appearance on the season premiere of BBC Two's “Later... with Jools Holland.” The track is the fourth single from the ex-Oasis star's debut solo album As You Were, which will hit shelves Oct. 6 via Warner/Parlophone.
NME reports on Sept. 27 that the “Wonderwall” hitmaker also performed the album's lead single “Wall of Glass” on the popular British late-night music show. A yet-to-be-named third song is expected to surface on an upcoming one-hour special of “Later..,” which will air on Sept. 30.
Video footage of the TV performance reveals "Greedy Soul" to be an aggressive rocker. The song opens with driving drums, punctuated by a teasing guitar riff before the ex-Beady Eye star steps up to the microphone to snarl through the opening verse, singing, “I'm going toe-to-toe/With a greedy soul/He's going down tonight/Gonna be out a while.”
The stripped-down first verse, propelled only by drums and guitar, explodes as it moves into the chorus with aid of horn section and three-part female harmony backup. Fans can check out the live performance of “Greedy Soul” above and watch the “Later...” performance of “Wall of Glass” here.
As You Were is available in both a 12-track standard edition and 16-track deluxe edition. The album is available for preorder here in a variety of bundles in CD, vinyl, as well as digital formats. The brand new single version of "Greedy Soul" can be streamed here.
The ever-controversial British pop-rocker recently announced an arena tour of the UK, which kicks off Oct. 29 in Dublin, Ireland, at Weston Airport as part of Samhain Festival. Fans in the US can catch Gallagher on Oct. 7 in San Bernardino, California, as part of Cal Jam 2017.
The UK dates will bookend Gallagher's first-ever North American solo tour, which begins Nov. 13 in San Francisco at The Warfield and wraps up Nov. 30 in Philadelphia at Union Transfer. Tickets for a variety of Liam Gallagher dates are available at AXS. For all the latest details on Liam Gallagher, click here.
