The former Oasis rocker revealed to Radio X's Johnny Vaughan how he used the vocals to All You're Dreaming Of from his home despite recording at Abbey Road.

Liam Gallagher recorded new single All You're Dreaming Of while in his pants.

The former Oasis frontman spoke to Radio X's Johnny Vaughan about his new single and life in lockdown 2.0 and revealed how he first laid down the vocals to the track at home in very relaxed attire.

“Me and Simon Aldridge put that one together,' he said of the track. "At the beginning of lockdown he sent me some ideas for it and I sent him some bits back. I had a little studio put in my house”

Asked if it was comfortable, Gallagher replied: "Mate I did it in my boxer shorts!"

Not only that, but the Manchester rocker revealed despite heading down to the iconic Abbey Road Studios to record his vocals again professionally with an orchestra, he didn't sound as good.

“So we go into Abbey in the lockdown," he explained. "Loads of people with masks on to do the brass and do the f***ng horns and all that. I do the vocals in Abbey Road and they were nowhere near as good as the ones I did in the house in my boxer shorts".

"SO I've binned the Abbey Road vocals and used these ones."

All You're Dreaming Of - which is available to stream now - will be released on vinyl on 18 December with proceeds of the song donated to Action For Children UK.

Gallagher said of the move: "I've got far too much," joking: "I just looked over the wall at my gold Damien Hirst collection and my Andy Warhol collection and thought: "F*** it I've got enough!"

Net proceeds from each download and stream will also go to the leading charity from the day of release until 31st December 2020.

With 476 services in communities across the UK, Action for Children provides practical and emotional support to children and young people, as well as ensuring their voices are heard, and campaigning for every child to have a safe and happy childhood.
