Beady Eye Announce 'Trippy' New Album 'BE'
Liam Gallagher says their second LP is 'a really special record'...
Beady Eyehave announced details of their highly-anticipated sophomore album, entitledLiam Gallagher and Co experiment with Protools, cassette tapes, samplers, recorded conversation, iphone apps and unusual instrumentation to create a new set of tracks.
Speaking of their new LP, Gallagher stated: "Working with Sitek just opened something up in us. He’s without a doubt the best producer I’ve ever worked with, a real outlaw - he doesn’t give a f**k, no rules.
"We had a new found focus when we were writing it - we really got our heads down and got our shit together - clear heads, none of that crap from the 90s. It feels like a really special record for us."
Sitek noted: “It’s a trippy record! The strength of the tracks is so high that we got to really play around! It’s rock-band instrumentation, but used in a different way."
He went on to praise the former Oasis frontman, adding: "Liam’s vocals are incredible, all you have to do is turn on a microphone and you’re like, ‘that sounds like a record!’ You don’t have to do anything to them.”
Lead single, Flick of the Finger already premiered over the weekend on US radio station KCRW and was later played by XFM and Zane Lowe on Radio 1 on Tuesday evening (April 9).
