Singer Liam Gallagher has recruited Adele's Hello producer and songwriter Greg Kurstin to help him with songs on his debut solo album As You Were.
The former Oasis frontman said he is "limited" when it comes to his flair for writing lyrics and decided to team up with the songwriter for his new music, reported Contactmusic.
The 44-year-old singer's girlfriend Debbie Gwyther – who acts as his manager and publicist – suggested he would bring in various people to help with getting his ideas on paper.
"It is what it is, mate. I didn't write 'Live Forever' but as soon as I sang it, I made it my own. I class myself as a rock 'n' roll singer who writes the odd tune now and again.
And that is it.
"I'm not going out saying I'm Bob Dylan. Ideally, you want to do it yourself. But I can't write those big songs. I'm limited. My verses are up there, but I just can't do that next bit," Gallagher said.
