Gallagher has worked with writing teams for some of the songs on his last two albums, including Greg Kurstin - who has also worked with Adele and Foo Fighters.

Speaking about his writing ability back in 2017 he revealed that he uses writing teams because he "can't write big songs".

“It is what it is, mate,” he told the Evening Standard. “I didn’t write Live Forever but as soon as I sang it, I made it my own. I class myself as a rock’n’roll singer who writes the odd tune now and again. And that is it. I’m not going out saying I’m Bob Dylan.”

“Ideally, you want to do it yourself,” the Wall Of Glass singer added. “But I can’t write those fucking big songs. I’m limited. My verses are up there, but I just can’t do that next bit.”
