Released Globally October 6 on Warner Bros. Records/Parlophone
July 5, 2017 (Burbank, CA) – Last week Liam Gallagherdebuted another new track from his highly anticipated solo album, As You Were. Gallagher continues to build anticipation for the October 6 release of his debut solo album by sharing the brand new video for the track “Chinatown.” The video was directed by Charlie Lightening for Lightening Films (Paul McCartney, Paul Weller, Kasabian) and was filmed at several locations in London one of which of course was London’s Chinatown area. Click here to view and share the video.
In contrast to album’s first single “Wall Of Glass,” “Chinatown” is an atmospheric, psychedelic slow burner in which he utilises a softer side of his inimitable vocal prowess. The two tracks hint at what to expect from As You Were, with Gallagher adding a forward-looking expression of his passion for a wide range of influences from the 60s and 70s.

As previously announced, Liam Gallagher and band will tour North America this fall:
I am a small business owner, freelance writer, and part-time piano instructor in Charlotte, NC. My musical career started at the age of five when I was forced into taking piano lessons. I played flute in the school band and added the guitar as a young teen. There is nothing I would rather do than be at a live show. My first concert was Shaun Cassidy at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo in 1978.
My top five live shows ever are:
1. Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band – Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, NY 1984- They played for 3 ½ hours and it was awesome.
2. Carolina Rebellion- Metrolina Expo Grounds, Charlotte, NC, May, 2011 – The first ever Carolina Rebellion featured over 15 bands with Avenged Sevenfold headlining. Non-stop music for over 12 hours.
3. Chevelle- Food Lion Speed Street, Charlotte, NC, May, 2008 – The first time I ever saw Chevelle live and I was hooked!
4. Skillet with Red- Bojangle’s Coliseum, Charlotte, NC, April, 2010 – Skillet is one of my favorite bands and they totally kick it live.
5. 106.5 The End’s Weenie Roast #9- Verizon Wireless Amiptheater, Charlotte, NC , October, 2003- Featured Staind, Shinedown, Three Days Grace.
