New Music Friday: Liam Gallagher – Diamond In The Dark EP

Liam Gallagher Diamond In The Dark

“I sing it very smooth and sexy, very Marvin Gaye-ish, very soft,” Liam Gallagher said of his John Lennon cover.

Liam Gallagher has released his Diamond In The Dark EP today, featuring the studio version of the title-track along with a live take recorded at Knebworth last month and a cover of John Lennon’s 1974 Walls And Bridges cut Bless You.

It follows C’MON YOU KNOW, described by Live4ever as ‘comfortably’ the Oasis frontman’s best solo album:

“Liam Gallagher proudly wears his influences on his sleeve so, inevitably, The Beatles come to mind on several occasions but this time it’s McCartney rather than Lennon,” our review reads.

“It Was Not Meant To Be initially cribs from the Rubber Soul era, complete with mandolin, tinny drums and double-tracked vocals, but once again progresses with a shuffled drop before a false ending, restarting as an organ-led, unfussy outro bringing to mind The Good, The Bad & The Queen, of all people.”
