Liam Gallagher releases a suprise EP titled "Acoustic Sessions", and shares a new video for "Once."
After teasing on Twittter, and instructing fans to open their eyes on Friday (January 31), Gallagher released an EP and a video.
He shared a video for "Once", song that appeared on his last alum "Why Me? Why Not?", but its demo version is on the EP. The video shows Gallagher as a servant on an estate owned by the king, who is played by Eric Cantona, French soccer star-turned-actor. Charlie Lightening, director of Gallagher's documentary is also director of this video, writes Rolling Stone.
Gallagher said in a tweet that he's "absolutely thrilled to have Eric Cantona, the last Rock n roll footballer, star in video for "Once"." He added that, "songs like this don’t come around very often and neither do football players like him.”
Release includes eight songs, seven of which Gallagher recorded at the MTV Unplugged broadcast at Hull City Hall in the U.K. in September 2019. It also includes acoustic rendition of three Oasis songs, 'Stand by Me,' 'Sad Songs,' and 'Cast No Shadow.' Original demo version of 'Once' concludes the EP.
“This is the original demo. It’s my favorite version; it’s silky smooth and it’s fizzy bubblech,” Gallagher said in a statement. “Tomorrow Never Knows,” “Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream!” he quoted the Beatles.
