Liam Gallagher has released a single, is going on tour, isn’t performing with The Killers

Liam Gallagher has released a new single and announced an arena tour. Plus he’s playing Glastonbury tomorrow. So busy! Although, apparently, his rumoured appearance as part of The Killers’ Glasto set isn’t happening, so he can have a rest then instead.

The new single is called ‘The River’ and it’s got a video and everything. It’s the second track released from Gallagher’s second solo album, ‘Why Me? Why Not’, which is out on 20 Sep.

But what about this Killers thing though? Well, Gallagher is apparently a big fan of the band, despite them being the sort of squeaky clean rock stars he’s always moaning on about. Gallagher has appeared on stage with them a couple of times before, although not always sober and never to sing.

The Sun claimed earlier this week that Gallagher was now lined up to properly collaborate with the band when they follow his Pyramid Stage set at Glastonbury on Saturday night.

However, a spokesperson for the band has now told the NME that those claims are not true. Except, of course, that’s exactly what they would say, isn’t it? If you’re there and want to find out if The Killers are liars or not, you’ll have plenty of time to get to their performance after you’ve watched Thom Yorke’s secret set on the Park Stage. Which I may or may not being lying about. Can you really trust anyone?

If you’re not there, or you turn up in time for The Killers only to find that Gallagher is definitely not getting involved, you’ll still be able to catch him on tour in November. Tickets go on general sale on 12 Jul. Here are the dates:
