Liam Gallagher has shared a video for his latest single, ‘Everything’s Electric’ – watch the Charlie Lightening-directed clip below.
The black-and-white video, which arrives after Gallagher’s recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, blends a brand new performance with other live footage, teasing what is set to be a big summer for the star.
In June, the rocker will play his biggest solo shows to date including two sold-out gigs at Knebworth. He’ll also perform at Lowlands Festival in the Netherlands and Rock in Rio Lisboa in Portugal this summer.
Watch the video for ‘Everything’s Electric’ below:
Gallagher and Grohl first met a number of years ago when the Foos and Oasis toured together. Speculation about a collaboration between the two has been building in recent years.
Speaking about Grohl’s contribution in a recent interview with NME, Gallagher said it was the first time the Foos frontman had ever sent him a song, but Grohl’s bandmate Taylor Hawkins sends him one “every fucking week”.
Grohl’s contribution – brought to Gallagher himself by Kurstin – was chosen over any of his friend Hawkins’ offerings because “it’s an out-and-out rock’n’roll tune”. The drummer’s ideas, meanwhile, he said were “a fucking bit kinky, man”.
In a separate interview, Grohl told NME that he felt like Gallagher was “one of the last remaining rock stars”.
While promoting Foo Fighters’ new gross-out splatter horror Studio 666, Grohl praised Gallagher and talked about how ‘Everything Electric’ came about.
“Unfortunately we didn’t do it in person but I love being in the same room as Liam,” he said of the collaboration. “It’s like putting a fucking quarter in a juke box and just turning it up with that guy. It’s fucking great. Obviously, he’s an amazing singer and he’s a fucking rock star. He is one of the few last remaining rock stars.”
He continued: “He was making a song [‘Everything’s Electric’] with the producer Greg Kurstin and they needed a beat which I think was described as something ‘Sabotage’-esque [Beastie Boys] and so I fucking served it up. I served up the beats. And the fucking single turned out great. I love that song I honestly do. I was dancing to it the other night.”
