 Liam Gallagher has debuted a brand-new track called The World Is in Need during an intimate charity show last night (27 April).

The former Oasis singer performed the new single at the King George’s Hall (1800 person capacity) in Blackburn to launch his new Adidas trainers, the LG2SPZLs.

All proceeds made from the gig went to Nightsafe- a local homeless charity that works with young people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless by providing accommodation and advice or guidance.

Gallagher played a 17-song set, kicking things off with the Oasis track Hello. He also went on to play other Oasis classic such as Rock ‘n’ Roll Star, Slide Away, Live Forever and Wonderwall (via Setlist.FM).

Halfway through the gig, LG treated fans to the very first performance of his latest single, Better Days, and dedicated the track to his bandmate Bonehead, who recently announced he would be taking a break from touring to receive treatment for tonsil cancer.

Later on in the evening, Gallagher then gave the small audience an exclusive listen to a new song, The World Is in Need, which will appear on his upcoming album C’mon You Know. He also performed the title track from the new album and the lead single Everything’s Electric.

In other news, LG recently said that he would “much rather be in a band” than a solo artist and that recording songs written for him by other people was “boring”, stating he missed collaborating with bandmates.

Speaking to MOJO magazine, the singer said: “It’s boring as f*** to be fair. It ain’t what it’s meant to be. I’d much rather be in a band, all bashing it out together. But as long as it sounds good, that’s all that matters.”
