Liam Gallagher made good on his word this morning and made an announcement -- he'll perform his first solo gig next Tuesday, May 30th. The show takes place at the O2 Ritz in Manchester and will be a benefit to raise money for families that were affected by this week's bombing attack in the city. Gallagher told the Manchester Evening News that he knew he had to step up and help:

"I just knew I had to. I’m not in it for the money. The gig was going to happen anyway and we all have to do what we can. I want to try and help pick people up. People like me, doing what we do, it’s our duty to give people a good time."

Though the world had hoped for an official announcement regarding his debut solo record today, that info is coming very soon. Today Gallagher launched a website today with artwork for a song titled "Wall of Glass," which debuts next week and shared a 30 second snippet of the song on Spotify:



The release of the full single is imminent. Zane Lowe is reportedly premiering the song on his show early next week, while U.K. station Radio X is reporting they'll have their "first play" of the song on Wednesday. iTunes has a listing for a June 2nd digital release for "Wall of Glass," which makes sense that Gallagher would want at least one new song out in advance of his lengthy summer festival itinerary.

UPDATE (5/29/17): The single will premiere worldwide on the BBC Wednesday, May 31st at 2:30 pm ET

The full album is reportedly titled As You Were and will be released in October.

Gallagher hits the road for a handful of solo shows and previously announced festival dates. His sole U.S. appearance takes place at Lollapalooza in Chicago on August 3rd.
