The upcoming record is said to be 10 or 11 songs long, with Gallagher saying of it in Q magazine: “The melodies are sick and the words are fucking funny. [It] sounds well tasty. You won’t be scratching your chin. It’s not Pink Floyd and it ain’t Radiohead. It’s chin-out music.”

He added that - although he is releasing a solo record - he is “not embarking on a solo ‘career’.”

Since the announcement, Gallagher Tweeted about the news, writing in a post “It's official I'm a c*nt,” a referenced to the aforementioned comments on writing a solo record.

The solo record marks the first time Gallagher has released music since 2014 with Beady Eye.
