Liam Gallagher Says That His Second Solo Album Is Now Finished
Dust off that Pretty Green parka and start brushing up on that Mancunian drawl, Liam Gallagher's second solo album is officially finished.
Yep, according to the man himself, the follow-up album to 2017's wildly successful 'As You Were' is now 'in the bag'. Big news for fans of the former Oasis frontman.
In typical laconic fashion, Gallagher told his army of Twitter followers about the good news, sharing: "Album 2 in the bag. Dya want some LG x"
There you have it.
However, other than this announcement we actually know very little at all about the forthcoming work. There's no music to hear, no name to try to figure out, and no release date.
We just have to take Liam at his word, which is a dangerous game at the best of times.
That said, we do have some bits of cryptic information that have been revealed to us by Charlie Lightening, a film director working on an upcoming documentary about Gallagher called As It Was.
Speaking to NME, Lightening said that this new album represents a progression for Liam, much like the movement that went on during his Oasis years.

He said: "It's mega, if you look at 'Definitely Maybe' and 'What's The Story (Morning Glory)?', one's the more punkier one and one's the bigger one.
"That's progression. People aren't gonna be disappointed with it. I think it's gonna blow people away."
He also went on the mention the first single that will be released from the album. We don't have a title yet, but Lightening reckons it is his favourite solo song that Gallagher has ever done.
The filmmaker continued: "I think it's way better than 'Wall Of Glass'.
It hits your harder. [The album] is a continuation of 'As You Were' but it's that bit bigger - if you're doing something for the second time, you've got more confidence behind you.
"The first single is so catchy. The middle eight on it is just mega and then it goes into a massive chorus."
Whilst we wait, the trailer for As It Was is available to watch now.
The film promises to explore the 'emotional story of how one of the greatest rock frontmen went from the dizzying heights of his champagne supernova years in Oasis to living on the edge ostracised lost in the musical wilderness of boredom, booze and bitter legal battles'.
Lightening said that the film shows: "One of the greatest rock'n'roll comebacks of all times and you are there with him each step of the way."
Let's hope the new music lives up to the billing, too.
