Liam Gallagher’s eagerly anticipated ‘MTV Unplugged’ album is out now. Recorded at Hull’s City Hall last summer, the show saw Liam join the list of all-time greats (Paul McCartney, Page and Plant, Nirvana and many more) who have filmed a prestigious MTV Unplugged session. Listen HERE
Liam commented, “I was honoured to perform at the legendary showcase that is ‘MTV Unplugged’. It was a lovely experience and the people of Hull were biblical and sounded fantastic. I hope you enjoy the record. LG x”
The electrifying atmosphere of the set is palpable from the very beginning with a phenomenal reaction as Liam takes to the stage with ‘Wall of Glass’. Material from Liam’s solo career such as his personal favourite ‘Once’ and the joyous ‘Now That I’ve Found You’ resonates in this stripped-back format, with his vocal shining alongside a trio of backing singers and string arrangements performed by the 24-piece Urban Soul Orchestra. Stripped of the force of its studio recording, ‘Gone’ is a standout as it reveals new-found bombastic dynamics and an evocative cinematic atmosphere.
Bonehead features on performances of the Oasis songs ‘Some Might Say’, ‘Stand By Me’, ‘Cast No Shadow’ and Liam’sfirst ever live vocal performance of the ‘Definitely Maybe’ bonus track ‘Sad Song’. The show concludes on a crowd-pleasing high with an emotive take on the classic ‘Champagne Supernova’.
