Yesterday, Radio Nova reported that Gallagher was seen performing on a boat on the Thames. It was speculated that he was preparing for a virtual concert.

The news comes as Gallagher has announced a limited edition vinyl box set of his second solo album ‘Why Me? Why Not’. The album was released in September 2019 and was the follow up to his first solo album released in 2017 entitled ‘As You Were’.

The new edition will be released on November 27th via Warner records. The new collection contains 14 white 7” vinyl records housed in a hard case lift-off lid box. Each record features a track from the deluxe edition of ‘Why Me? Why Not.’ on the A-side, with a different coloured screen printed image on the B-side. A unique piece of artwork also comes with each 7″. It is available to pre-order from Gallagher’s store here.
