Well, Liam Gallagher thinks so...

Liam Gallagher has claimed that his estranged brother will be keen to hear Beady Eye's upcoming debut album.

The Gallaghers have a complex relationship. Liam and Noel's mutual fuelled Oasis, the most successful British rock group of their generation, but as the two sang on 'Acquiesce' - "we need each other".

Now estranged since the band's split in 2009, Liam Gallagher is fully focussed on Beady Eye. The group are gearing up for their debut British tour, and the iconic frontman is talking big about their forthcoming album.

The LP is lingering on the release schedule, with initial reports suggesting that it is an album brimming with swaggering attitude. Beady Eye could dominate the summer, with a date at the Royal Albert Hall confirmed in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, Liam Gallagher explained that his brother would be keeping a keen interest. "He's (Noel) a music lover, so I'm sure he'll have his ear out," he said. "I'm sure it's not gonna make or break his day."

Continuing, the singer admitted a passing interest in how his brother's solo career would progress. "I'll give a listen to it when it comes out," he said. "But it ain't gonna make or break my fucking day, you know what I mean? You don't just turn off 'cause you're not in a band together. He'll be checking (our album) out. Of course he will."

Noel Gallagher has refused to be rushed into producing new solo material. Playing only two live shows in 2010, the songwriter is said to be focussing on spending time with his young family.

Meanwhile, Beady Eye are roaring into the public gaze. Debut album 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' is due for release on February 28th, with a date confirmed at the Royal Albert Hall soon after.

Beady Eye have confirmed the following show:

25 London Royal Albert Hall
