Beady Eye are set to release their new album 'BE' on June 10th.
Beady Eye are changing. Voicing their frustration with their debut album, the band invited producer Dave Sitek into the studio for renewed sessions.
The results are almost here. Earlier this week, new track 'Flick Of The Finger' emerged online following a radio premiere on KCRW - laden with horns and noise rock guitars, it ended with a spoken word recitation of the work of a French revolutionary writer.
Clearly in the mood to take risks, Beady Eye have now firmed up details of their second album. 'BE' will be released on June 10th, and - according to Liam Gallagher - the record represents a break with their heritage.
"Working with Sitek just opened something up in us" he said. "He’s without a doubt the best producer I’ve ever worked with, a real outlaw - he doesn’t give a fuck, no rules. We had a new found focus when we were writing it - we really got our heads down and got our shit together - clear heads, none of that crap from the 90s. It feels like a really special record for us.”
For his part, Dave Sitek is extremely enthusiastic about the results of those fateful London sessions. “It’s a trippy record! The strength of the tracks is so high that we got to really play around! It’s rock-band instrumentation, but used in a different way. Liam’s vocals are incredible, all you have to do is turn on a microphone and you’re like, ‘that sounds like a record!’ You don’t have to do anything to them.”
Here's 'Flick Of The Finger'.
