Liam Gallagher and his new band, Beady Eye, release their first single as a free download today, November 10. Take a listen and download the song, titled “Bring the Light,” on the group’s website.
The single also will be available in 7” vinyl form for a limited time, with the track “Sons of the Stage” as the B-side. The four-piece group, which in addition to Gallagher includes former Oasis members Gem Archer and Andy Bell, along with ex-Oasis tour drummer Chris Sharrock, recorded their debut album this past summer. The yet-to-be-titled disc is scheduled for release in 2011.
Speaking earlier this year to London’s Sunday Times, Gallagher characterized Beady Eye’s sound as Beatles-esque, and went on to cite T. Rex and Jerry Lee Lewis as influences as well. In the same interview, Gallagher predicted the group would be “bigger [than Oasis].”
