Feast Your Ears On Liam Gallagher's 'MTV Unplugged' Album Next Month
UPDATE 26/3/2020: Due to the global outbreak of COVID-19, Liam Gallagher's MTV Unplugged album release has unfortunately been put on hold for now. As soon as we get more details about when the album will be released, we'll share them with you all here. In the meantime you can enjoy plenty of fun content from the man himself. Stay safe everyone.
Liam Gallagher’s biblical MTV Unplugged will soon be yours to own following the announcement today that the live album is set for release on 24th April.
Last summer Liam Gallagher joined the list of all-time greats (Paul McCartney, Page and Plant, Nirvana and many more) who have filmed a prestigious MTV Unplugged session.
Having missed Oasis’s 1996 session through illness, the show at Hull’s City Hall found Liam fulfilling some unfinished business entirely on his own terms.
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”
Liam will launch his MTV Unplugged album by premiering the performance of ‘Gone’ and hosting a live chat at YouTube at 4pm on Thursday.
If you weren’t able to witness the once in a lifetime gig in person, the show’s electrifying atmosphere is evidently 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.
Oasis guitarist Bonehead features on performances of ‘Some Might Say’, ‘Stand By Me’, ‘Cast No Shadow’ and Liam’s first 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’.
