Confirmation of the Down By The River Thames stream follows the news that a collector edition of Liam’s critically-acclaimed number one album Why Me? Why Not will be released on November 27 via Warner Records.

The box is a must-have collector’s edition that compiles 14 seven- inch singles in an exclusively-designed package.It’s available to pre-order exclusively from Liam’s official store.

Released last year, Why Me? Why Not went straight to the top of the UK album charts to prove that Liam Gallagher’s star quality remains undeniable.

The album’s huge commercial success included 68,000 first-week sales as it outsold the remainder of the top five combined and became 2019’s fastest selling vinyl release.

It was subsequently certified gold.

Earlier this year, Liam released MTV Unplugged as he completed a hat-trick of solo UK number one albums.

Between his compelling solo career and his iconic time with Oasis, Liam has topped the Official UK Album Chart with 11 different records from 1994 to 2020.
