Fans who buy any version of ‘MTV Unplugged’ or who register here will be entered into the competition. All pre-orders will receive instant downloads of ‘Sad Song’ and ‘Gone’.
In a a statement, Gallagher said,
“I was honoured to perform at the legendary showcase that is ‘MTV Unplugged’. It was a lovely experience and the people of Hull were biblical and sounded fantastic. I hope you enjoy the record. LG x”
The atmosphere of the ‘MTV Unplugged’ set is described in a press release as “palpable from the very beginning with a phenomenal reaction as Liam takes to the stage with ‘Wall of Glass’. Material from Liam’s solo career such as his personal favourite ‘Once’ and the joyous ‘Now That I’ve Found You’ resonates in this stripped-back format, with his vocal shining alongside a trio of backing singers and string arrangements performed by the 24-piece Urban Soul Orchestra. Oasis guitarist Bonehead features on performances of ‘Some Might Say’, ‘Stand By Me’, ‘Cast No Shadow’ and ‘Sad Song”.
This MTV performance is in stark contrast to 1996. Back then, Liam had been scheduled to perform with Oasis for MTV Unplugged, but he barely attended rehearsals, and bowed out of the show at the last moment with what he said was a sore throat. It fell to Noel Gallagher to step-in as a the lead singer, while Liam nursed his sore throat with champagne and cigarettes, even heckling Noel from the crowd.
Liam recently announced that he’ll play a free concert for NHS staff at London’s The O2 on October 29th.
