The song is an uplifting rock anthem built on the musician’s Britpop legacy, and it features Vampire Weekend‘s Ezra Koenig on saxophone.
The new release follows C’mon You Know‘s introductory single, the Dave Grohl-assisted “Everything’s Electric,” which emerged in February. C’mon You Know takes its name from one of Gallagher’s cheeky Twitter sign-offs, just like his first solo LP, 2017’s As You Were.
Near the bottom of this post, hear “C’mon You Know” and see the artwork and track listing for its parent album, out on May 27. The singer’s live album Down by the River Thames arrives the same day.
Gallagher was one of many who paid tribute to Foo Fighters‘ Taylor Hawkins after the drummer’s unexpected death last week. Before that, the Oasis alum opined that most rock stars are useless and “live a very boring fucking life” in an interview with Loudwire Nights.
Earlier this year, Gallagher defended Taylor Swift after the pop star shot down Damon Albarn, the lead singer of Blur and Gorillaz, for saying that Swift didn’t write her songs herself. Blur and Oasis were big Britpop rivals back in the 1990s. But there doesn’t seem to be an Oasis reunion on the horizon, although Gallagher has hinted at it.
