Liam Gallagher's 'As You Were' Is Currently Outselling The Rest Of Top 20 Combined

Liam Gallagher has enjoyed a fairly typical explosive return to the music scene, embarking on his first solo mission to launch As You Were.

The album was released on October 6, and followed the singles 'Wall of Glass', 'Chinatown', 'For What It's Worth' and 'Greedy Soul'.

It's been heralded as a return to form following Beady Eye's two albums failed to make the same impact as Oasis did.

LG's older brother Noel also made his return to music, announcing his third album with his High Flying Birds Who Built The Moon? and releasing the first single 'Holy Mountain'.

The rocky relationship between the two Gallaghers will always be a more sought after story for fans and the media, while statistics may go unnoticed.

As it turns out, As You Were is the highest-selling UK album by the midweek stage since Ed Sheeran's ÷, NME reports.

The Official Charts' midweek update also states that the Mancunians debut solo effort is outselling the top 20... combined.

It's reportedly shifted 79,000 through physical sales and downloads, which can't be bad, can it?

As You Were sees Liam take on song writing duties, with the help of Greg Kurstin, Andrew Wyatt and others. Back in the days of Oasis Noel Gallagher was the chief songwriter, with Liam not chipping in until their fourth studio album Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, and the rest of the band helping out later on, too.

Noel wrote many classics like 'Live Forever', 'Rock n Roll Star', 'Wonderwall', 'Don't Look Back in Anger', 'Champagne Supernova', 'Morning Glory' and many more.

Despite not being penned by him, Liam says that he'll continue to sing Oasis songs as he feels they're as much his as they are Noel's, which you'd have to agree with.

Noel, known as The Chief, made his comeback with 'Holy Mountain', a song totally different to anything he's done in the past.

He says that it was inspired by a 70s track called 'The Chewing Gum Kid', by an act called Ice Cream. It also resembles a bit of Plastic Bertrand's 'Ca Plane Pour Moi'.

However these comparisons went under the radar as most people only recognised that it sounds a bit like 'She Bangs' by Ricky Martin.

Whichever way you like to take the sibling rivalry, picking sides or whatever, it's fair to say it's a good time to be a fan of the pair.
