Former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher has confirmed that he will record and release a solo album in the next few months.

Gallagher will be joined by fellow ex-Oasis members Andy Bell, Zak Starkey and Gem Archer.

Talking to MTV Italy, the Mancunian said: “We’ve been demoing some songs that we’ve had on the quiet. After Christmas we might go in the studio and record it and hopefully have an album out in July.

“We’ll do it in a different kind of way now. I’ll try and reconnect with a new band, new songs and I’m feeling confident about the songs. I’m feeling a million per cent confident that they could be better than Oasis.”

Gallagher also spoke about his relationship with his brother Noel, who is also expected to go solo imminently.

He said: “I love him to bits but we just don’t get on. “Me and our kid have never been that close anyway. Alright, we were in the band but we kept ourselves to each other, he’d do his thing and I’d do my thing, I’ve got my friends, he’s got his friends.”
