Director of the Oasis documentary, Matt Whitecross has discussed his reaction to hearing some of Liam Gallagher’s new solo material.
Speaking to NME recently, the ‘Supersonic’ director spoke about listening to the new album “Well, I’ve got to say one of those bucket list moments in my life was when we got a helicopter to go the [Supersonic] premiere, he just turns to me and goes ‘Shall we listen to the new album then?’, then he pulls out these speakers and blasted it out as we were approaching Manchester.”
Whitecross described the album as “epic”, continuing “It just blew me away. I think everyone’s in for a treat. It’s fantastic.” The director added, “I probably shouldn’t talk about it too much because it’s not my place to say, and it was demos that I listened to, he hasn’t finished it yet, it was very stripped down, very raw.”
Whitecross concluded, “I know it’s very fashionable to put people down in the public eye, but I think Liam’s as passionate about music now as he ever has been. If people gave the new album a proper fair and proper listen, they’re in for a treat.”
