Liam Gallagher has teamed up with Dave Grohl for his brand new single “Everything’s Electric”￼, which can be streamed below.
The track amplifies anticipation for the May 27th release of his third studio album, C’MON YOU KNOW. Co-written by Dave Grohl (who also performs drums on the track) and produced by multi-GRAMMY Award winner Greg Kurstin [Adele, Harry Styles, Foo Fighters], Gallagher and Grohl first met many years ago when Foo Fighters played with Oasis on tour. They’ve maintained a mutual admiration ever since, while speculation about a possible collaboration between the pair has risen in recent years. To craft the song, they melded the thunderous dynamics of Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” with the spiralling tension and danger of The Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter.” With raw, rhythmic phrasing, this is as close as Liam’s iconic snarl comes to rapping and that punk-meets-hip-hop attack is underlined by boisterous bass. Meanwhile, slide guitar, piano flourishes and Liam’s haunting backing vocals pay tribute to arguably The Stones’ finest moment.
C’MON YOU KNOW follows Gallagher’s 2017 album, As You Were, and 2019 album, Why Me? Why Not., and will be available in several formats, all of which are now available to pre-order here. Gallagher’s official store offers a limited-edition cassette, while three new vinyl formats are available exclusively via specific retailers. Amazon and HMV both stock their own colored vinyl editions, while a clear vinyl is also available via select independent stores.
