And their debut track\, ‘Just Another Rainbow’\, lived up to the hype as it hit #16 on the UK singles chart while also shooting direct to #1 on the sales\, downloads\, vinyl and physical singles charts – in the process achieving Liam’s highest singles chart entry in fifteen years.\nBut that was just the start. Now Liam Gallagher and John Squire announce much more from their collaboration. Their self-titled debut album will be released on March 1st and is today launched alongside its second single\, ‘Mars To Liverpool’. They also announce details of their first UK tour together\, as well as select shows in Ireland\, France\, Germany\, Italy and the USA.\nLiam says\, “I can’t wait for people to hear the album. I think the people that are into the Stone Roses and Oasis and that kinda thing\, I think they’ll fucking love it. It’s spiritual\, it’s crucial. LG x”\nJohn adds\, “It was really inspiring to have those Knebworth gigs fresh in my mind as I started writing. Then it was a case of trying to steer it away from all being too rocky\, and trying to mix up the sentiments as well. I like the way that in some parts\, it’s quite melancholic and it can make you well up\, but there are other parts that are kind of irreverent\, rude or crude. There’s a little bit of everything in there\, I think it’s a really good mix. I had a hunch that we’d sound good together\, but I wasn’t prepared for it to be such a good fit.”\nLike ‘Just Another Rainbow’ before it\, ‘Mars To Liverpool’ delivers exactly what you’d hope from the pair. Delivering infectious rock ‘n’ roll with an undercurrent of ‘60s-tinged psychedelia\, it sees John weaving inventive guitar work – chiming riffs\, fluid classic rock solos – around Liam’s uplifting vocal delivery. As with the best of their work from their famous bands and solo work\, ‘Mars To Liverpool’ elevates its air of melancholy into a soaring\, crowd-pleasing anthem. So that’s now two killer singles to maximise anticipation for the release of the album.\nLong-terms friends with a mutual admiration for each other’s work\, the idea of a collaboration started when John joined Liam on-stage at his biblical Knebworth shows. Song ideas were soon flowing\, and the album took shape with an intuitive intensity during in Los Angeles with the revered producer Greg Kurstin. He played bass throughout the record\, while drums were performed by Joey Waronker (Beck\, R.E.M.\, Atoms For Peace).
