Liam Gallagher has teamed up with his longtime friend John Squire to release their first single together, “Just Another Rainbow.”
The former Oasis lead vocalist and the Stone Roses guitarist have promised to release more songs as part of their new project in 2024.
“There will be much more new music to come – and there could well be shows, too,” says a press release.
Speaking about their collaboration, Gallagher said, “I think John’s a top songwriter. Everyone always bangs on about him as a guitarist, but he’s a top songwriter too, man, no two ways about it as far as I’m concerned. There’s not enough of his music out there, whether it’s with the Roses or himself.”
“It’s good to see him back writing songs and fucking good ones,” he continued. “The melodies are mega and then the guitars are a given. But I think even when you take all the fucking guitars off, you can play the songs all on acoustic and they’ll all still blow your mind.”
Regarding the new song, Squire said, “To me the most obvious take on ‘Just Another Rainbow’ is that it’s about disappointment, and the sentiment is that you never get what you really want,” adding that it’s “one of the most uplifting tracks we’ve made together, which is weird.”
Gallagher and Squire came together at the latter’s studio in Macclesfield in 2022, which was followed by a three-week recording session in Los Angeles.
“Just Another Rainbow” was produced by Greg Kurstin. He plays bass, with Joey Waronker on drums.
