Liam Gallagher & John Squire - Liam Gallagher & John Squire -†Warner Records

Liam and John have been friends for years but when Liam invited John to join him on stage at Knebworth in 2022 it reignited a long-running ambition of writing and recording an album together. The demos were written at John's home studio in Macclesfield and then recorded with legendary producer, Greg Kurstin and mixed by Spike Stent. Joey Waronker (Atoms for Peace, Beck, R.E.M.) plays drums on the album.

Mannequin Pussy - I Got Heaven

Mannequin Pussy - I Got Heaven - EPITAPH

Mannequin Pussyís music feels like a resilient and galvanizing shout that demands to be heard. Across four albums, the Philadelphia rock band that consists of Colins ďBearĒ Regisford (bass, vocals), Kaleen Reading (drums, percussion), Maxine Steen (guitar, synths), and Marisa Dabice (guitar, vocals) has made cathartic tunes about despairing times. ďThereís just so much constantly going on that feels intentionally evil that trying to make something beautiful feels like a radical act ,Ē says Dabice. ďThe ethos of this band has always been to bring people together.Ē

Their new album, I Got Heaven, which is out March 1 via Epitaph Records, is the bandís most fully realized recording yet. Over ten ambitious tracks which abruptly turn from searing punk to inviting alternative pop, the album is deeply concerned with desire, the power in being alone, and how to live in an unfeeling and unkind world. Itís a document of a band doubling down on their unshakable bond to make something furious, thrilling, and wholly alive.

Following the 2019 release of their critically acclaimed third album Patience, Mannequin Pussy returned in 2021 for their EP Perfect. They toured that release relentlessly and added guitarist Maxine Steen to the bandís official lineup. The band changed their entire creative formula, choosing to write together in the studio in Los Angeles with producer John Congleton , over slowly crafting tracks at home. ďEveryone felt empowered to speak up about their own ideas to make this thing the best it could possibly be,Ē says Regisford.
