The former Oasis frontman has told fans on Twitter what to expect from the lead single for his third studio album.

Liam Gallagher has teased that his new solo single will be a "banger".

The former Oasis frontman has released two solo albums, As You Were in 2017 and Why Me? Why Not. in 2019, so far and his third effort is said to be on its way this year.

Asked by a fan on Twitter if the first single from the new record will be a ballad or a rock 'n' roll tune, the Manchester rocker replied: "Always come back with a banger to wake people up".

Last year also saw the Wall Of Glass singer reveal his new album was "shaping up well" and was expected to land in 2021.

He even went as far as to tease it's title, telling Zane Lowe: " The next one is going to be called Come On You Know, pure positive."Right legit.

"As soon as I get the titles man, we are off."

Though Liam fans will be eager to hear new material, they were gifted with a treat during the pandemic with his heartfelt festive single, All You're Dreaming Of - with net proceeds going towards Action For Children UK.

Speaking of the competition the Supersonic singer said: "I can’t wait to get back to playing for the fans. But in the meantime, we need to look after the live industry and support our venues."

John Jokey, owner of the Priory said: "We can’t thank Liam enough for his generosity, it will be a huge help in keeping us going until we can put on live music again and get back to supporting up and coming musicians. We’d also like to thank This Feeling for their continued support".
