Liam Gallagher and John Squire, fulfilling the dream of so many fans of Oasis and The Stone Roses, have recorded a joint album that will go on sale on March 1.
NME shares the details that remained to be known about this album signed by two hands between Gallagher and Squire and which will not have a title.
These details are, firstly, the album cover, a still life of cleaning products, cosmetics and various plastics and, secondly, the official sequence, made up of 10 tracks. The final track is titled ‘Mother Nature’s Song’, almost like that MGMT song that was “inspired by Oasis.”
‘Mars to Liverpool’ is the second single from the album and is available now, revealing a brighter and less psychedelic sound than the first preview, ‘Just Another Rainbow’. In ‘Mars to Liverpool’ a vitalistic sound commands, marked by the sound of guitars that are tremendously reminiscent of the work of The Stone Roses.
Contrasting the upbeat energy of ‘Mars to Liverpool’, Liam sings tormented lyrics based on his own personal ‘self-discovery’. Liam, emotionally hungover after a night he regrets, apologizes to someone with whom he was on the verge of consolidating a relationship, but it couldn’t be, and asks to move as soon as possible “from Mars to Liverpool”: it doesn’t seem to end to find the right key to put that person in your pocket, but you don’t give up.
This is the tracklist of the album:
01 Raise Your Hands
02 March to Liverpool
03 One Day At a Time
04 I’m a Wheel
05 Just Another Rainbow
05 Love You Forever
06 Make It Up As You Go Along
