C'mon You Know follows the huge success of Liam Gallagher's previous two solo studio albums As You Were ( 2017 ) and Why Me? Why Not ( 2019 ), which established his iconic status for a whole new generation. While C'mon You Know pulsates with the traits that have made Liam such an iconic figure – a raucous rock ‘n' roll anthem topped by his signature snarl – it's also a strong step forward in terms of both attitude and audio.
Musically it's layered with unexpected sonic touches: surging Motown-tinged gospel backing vocals, shrieking saxophone from Ezra Koenig, and vintage Moog synths heightening the sonic maelstrom. Liam's lyrics also come from a fresh place: rather than being combative, his words brim with positivity and the joy of being reunited with friends, family and fans. As he openly admits, "I'm sick of being tough."
As suggested by the title track and "Everything's Electric," C'mon You Know infuses Liam's classic, hands-in-the-air anthems with fresh experimental flourishes. Andrew Wyatt is the main producer throughout, while Koenig contributes to a selection of tracks. Other producers/writers include Greg Kurstin ( Adele, Sir Paul McCartney ), Dave Grohl, Ariel Rechtshaid ( HAIM, Brandon Flowers ), Adam Noble ( Biffy Clyro ), regular Liam collaborators Michael Tighe and Simon Aldred, and members of his live band, Dan McDougall and Mike Moore.
