Oasis‘ Liam Gallagher and The Stone Roses‘ John Squire have announced a new collaborative album. The first single, titled “Just Another Rainbow,” will drop on January 5th.
The former Oasis frontman and ex-Stone Roses guitarist have been teasing music together for quite some time. Back in June, Gallagher brought Squires out during his Knebworth shows to perform the 1995 Oasis classic “Champagne Supernova” before tweeting, “Super group incoming LG JS.”
In a promotional video announcing the single, Liam calls Squire “without a doubt the best guitarist of his generation and in the world in my opinion,” with Squire calling Liam “one of the all time great rock and roll voices. I put him in the same class as Dylan, Lennon, Jagger and Rotten.”
“I think John’s a top songwriter,” says Liam. “Everyone always bangs on about him as a guitarist, but he’s a top songwriter too, man, no two ways about it as far as I’m concerned. There’s not enough of his music out there, whether it’s with the Roses or himself. It’s good to see him back writing songs and fucking good ones. The melodies are mega and then the guitars are a given. But I think even when you take all the fucking guitars off, you can play the songs all on acoustic and they’ll all still blow your mind.”
Squire adds, “To me the most obvious take on ‘Just Another Rainbow’ is that it’s about disappointment, and the sentiment is that you never get what you really want. But I don’t like to explain songs, I think that’s the privilege of the listener, it’s whatever you want it to be. To me, it’s also one of the most uplifting tracks we’ve made together, which is weird.”
