CMU tells us the following:
There’s new speculation as to whether the sixth Oasis album will see the light of day before the end of the year following reports that Liam Gallagher is getting excited about a new ‘supergroup’ side project.
Word is that Liam is teaming up with former Stone Roses’ guitarist John Squire and the late Beatle George Harrison’s son Dhani to form a new group. He is now looking for other established artists to join the trio in the studio later this year.
A source told reporters last week: “Liam is an ambitious lad and thinks the music scene needs an injection of something exciting. He knows Dhani and John and has huge respect for their talents. They have discussed getting together for a one-off album and are now interested in getting other big names involved. In the summer they will properly sit down and start writing
some tracks together with a view to getting something out for Christmas.”
It is unclear whether those plans will interfere with the Oasis recording schedule. Work on the sixth album faltered when the band parted company with the production talents of Death In Vegas earlier this year, essentially shelving most of what had been achieved to date. The band are due back in the studio very soon to continue work on the album, but relations between
the two Gallagher brothers are rumoured to be on a low again.
