Last week saw the release of Liam Gallagher
's second single from his upcoming album As You Were
, a stripped-back acoustic ballad titled "Chinatown." Today, the artist revealed a bright, sentimental new video for the single, which sees him walking around the streets of London while staring wide-eyed at various sights awash in sunlight, which is totally fitting given the tone of the song ("Me, I just believe in the sun," the former Oasis singer proclaims as he looks out on a Thames soaked in an orange glow). One particularly moving moment sees Gallagher standing beside graffiti that reads "We Stand United With Manchester."
As You Were
will be the Britpop idol's solo debut, and at the end of May he released the first single off the album, titled "Wall Of Glass." Both "Wall Of Glass" and "Chinatown" represent a return to form for Gallagher, especially after his most recent outing in the band Beady Eye, which dissolved in 2014. Also, interestingly enough, As You Were
will see Gallagher collaborating with producer Greg Kurstin, who is widely known and respected for his work producing tracks for pop singers like Sia, Adele, and Halsey, but is also producing the new Foo Fighters album
. It's interesting to see Kurstin expanding his portfolio as a producer by working with notable rock acts, and so far the results, in Gallagher's case at least, have been pretty great.
As You Were
will be released on October 6.
