Debut solo album, 'As You Were,' available Oct. 6 via Warner Bros. Records
high-profile return has already encompassed life-affirming live shows around the world with more than 12 million streams of the lead track "Wall Of Glass,"
and the recent "Chinatown,"
which Rolling Stone compared to the Oasis classic "Champagne Supernova."
Gallagher's next step toward the Oct. 6 release of his debut solo album, "As You Were," comes with the brand-new track "For What It's Worth," which is available beginning today.
Produced by Dan Grech-Marguerat, "For What It's Worth" was written by Gallagher with Simon Jons. Gallagher's iconic vocal captures the power and emotion required to deliver the kind of towering, anthemic chorus that his voice is built for.
"I wanted to write an apology," he said. "Not to one person, but to everyone, because I'm no good at saying sorry. That song is a tune."
Gallagher wrote or co-wrote almost every song that's featured on "As You Were." In addition to Grech-Marguerat, other key collaborators include Greg Kurstin, Andrew Wyatt of Miike Snow, and Michael Tighe.
One of the most striking aspects of the album is that all the songs have a purpose. There's nothing unnecessary, nothing to cut. They all feel directed at something or someone, setting the record straight and reflecting Gallagher's lyrical point of view.
"I didn't want to be reinventing anything or going off on a space jazz odyssey," he said. "It's the Lennon 'Cold Turkey' vibe, The Stones, the classics. But done my way, now."
