Liam Gallagher Reflects On His Collaboration With Dave Grohl
Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher shared his ideas about Foo Fighters during his recent interview with The Rod Ryan Show. The musician also told the story of his recent collaboration with the band’s frontman Dave Grohl for his latest song.
Liam Gallagher released his second solo studio album entitled ‘Why Me? Why Not.’ on September 20, 2019. It received positive reviews from music critics and fans. Its tracks, ‘Shockwave,’ ‘One of Us,’ and ‘Once’ were listened to and are famous worldwide. Without giving a long break, Gallagher started working on his next record and recently announced his upcoming album ‘C’mon You Know.’
The new record will be released on May 27, 2022; before the release, Gallagher shared the lead single named ‘Everything’s Electric’ on February 4, 2022. The singer collaborated with Dave Grohl and record producer Greg Kurstin, who co-wrote the song and wanted to use Gallagher’s vocals. Gallagher talked about their collaboration in his interview and highlighted that he ended the recording process before this final song.
However, when he listened to the song and added his vocals, he appreciated it so much that he decided to use it as a lead single for his new album. Even though they were never in the same studio, they worked harmoniously for ‘Everything’s Electric.’ Gallagher added that he respects Foo Fighters and drew attention to their international success. Their fans were waiting for this project for years after Oasis and Foo Fighters’ performance on Noise And Confusion 05 in 2005 and their various guest appearances in the following years.
Gallagher’s statements about Foo Fighters and Grohl collaboration follow:
“They are massive, not just biggest Americans. They play like big all over around, so I respect them. We were never in the studio with Dave. Here’s what happened. So we finished the album around about November last year, and we started it sort of in the second lockdown because first, I wasn’t even going to do a record. We finished the tour, and then we got away with it then all went weird. I sat in the garden and drank, brought all right the end of the world.
I realized it was not and started messing about some tunes. I think it was all, and the restrictions were chilled in that we could get into the studio. We got into the studio, banged some tunes down, and finished it in November. I was leaving the studio with the album finished, going to a pub, and got a phone call saying, ‘Look, you go back in the studio, Greg Kurstin and Dave Grohl brought this tune.’ I said ‘All right’ and went back to the studio and listened to the song, put down the vocals, sent it back to them. They sent it back; this is what we ended it up with.”
