Liam Gallagher of Oasis and John Squire of The Stone Roses have released their first collaborative single, “Just Another Rainbow.” Stream it below.
In a statement, Squire described “Just Another Rainbow” as a song about “disappointment,” adding that despite the negative themes, it’s still “one of the most uplifting tracks that we’ve made together, which is weird.”
Last month, Gallagher previewed “Just Another Rainbow” in a video also naming Squire as “without a doubt the best guitarist of his generation and in the world.”
The song arrives as Gallagher and Squire’s lead single for their upcoming collaborative album, which has been confirmed by the two but has not been formally detailed yet. The album was recorded at Squire’s studio in Macclesfield, UK, and was produced by Greg Kurstin.
“Just Another Rainbow” may be the pair’s first official single as a duo, but Squire notably guested at Oasis’ landmark Knebworth concert in 1996 to play “Champagne Supernova” with the band and reprised his guest-starring role at Gallagher’s Knebworth shows in 2022. Later on in 1996, they teamed up to write “Love Me and Leave Me” for Squire’s post-Stone Roses project The Seahorses, which resulted in Gallagher’s first songwriting credit.
Liam Gallagher will kick off his summer with a short run of UK and Ireland shows in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Oasis’ debut, Definitely Maybe. While his brother Noel has opted not to join, you can get tickets to Gallagher’s special Definitely Maybe shows here.
