    On Thursday Liam Gallagher announced that he is working on a solo LP. "Very excited to be signing to the mighty Warner Brothers; looking forward to making some super sweet sounds," he noted in a statement. "Keep the faith!" The album will be released in 2017.

    With his usual forthright approach to announcements, Gallagher was eager to underline that the album was a one off. "I am not embarking on a solo 'career,'" the former Oasis and Beady Eye frontman said in an interview with Q this week. "Everyone should know that."

    "There are just 10, 11 songs I've written that are eligible to be recorded... They've got flair, attitude, the melodies are sick and the words are f****ing funny ... It's a record written by me that's got all the right ingredients and 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."

    Gallagher is developing the new material with "two lads." "One's a multi-instrumentalist and he can play anything,....Not that there's much to play on these songs. One guitar, acoustic. One guitar, electric. Drum kit, keyboard … That's your lot. Proper sparse, really pumping. How it should be."

    Gallagher's band Beady Eye — which contains former members of Oasis — last released an album in 2013.

    Noel Gallagher, Liam's estranged brother and former band mate has yet to comment.

    Watch the remastered version of the "Do You Know What I Mean" from Oasis' sprawling 1997 album Be Here Now which will be reissued in October.
