June 7, 2019 (Los Angeles, CA) – One of the most captivating frontmen of all-time Liam Gallagher returns with his powerful new single “Shockwave” released today, June 7. “Shockwave” is now available digitally, streaming and on 7” vinyl formats. Stream and download “Shockwave” here. 7” vinyl D2C pre-order here.

This is the first new music from Gallagher since his chart-topping 2017 solo album debut As You Were and the first taste of what’s to come from his forthcoming second album, Why Me? Why Not.

“Shockwave” erupts into life with an indelible riff which channels The Who and T. Rex, before Gallagher bursts in on the unrelenting hook with his signature venomous punch. “You sold me right down the river, you had to hold me back,” he sings, “you could’ve looked for the sunshine, but you had to paint the whole thing black.” You’ll be singing the chorus for the rest of the year: “It’s coming round like a shockwave!”

Gallagher wrote “Shockwave” with two of the key collaborators behind the As You Were album: Andrew Wyatt, who won the Academy Award for Best Original Song as co-writer of “Shallow” from the film A Star Is Born, and the multiple Grammy-winner Greg Kurstin who also produced the track. It was recorded in Los Angeles and at RAK Studios in London.
 
“I’m buzzing,” says Gallagher. “Buzzing to be alive, buzzing to be making tunes, raring to go. It’s nice to be back with some new music because it means I can get out there, play some gigs and give some people some stick because that is what I do. Let’s face it, it’s boring without me.”
Shockwave” heralds the start of an action packed summer for Gallagher who will return to Glastonbury 2019, performing on the Pyramid Stage on June 29. Later this year, U.S. fans will have a chance to see the highly-anticipated Liam Gallagher documentary ‘As It Was.’
