Speaking about the song, Gallagher said: “For this new record, it was the first thing I wrote, the first thing I demoed, and the first thing I finished, so it’s only right that it’s the first thing people hear.
“Huge kudos to my main man Johnny Marr for taking this somewhere special. Oh…and watch out for my cameo in the video…the first one to spot me will get a Flamin’ Hot Wotsits Giants pack!!
