VIDEO: Beady Eye record Manchester City football anthem

Beady Eye have covered the Elvis Presley classic "Blue Moon" to help launch the new Manchester City football kit made by Umbro.

The new kit features a soundwave graphic across the front which was taken from a 19 second recording of the club's fans singing "Blue Moon."

"I've been a City fan since I was a kid so to be involved with the launch of a new kit is colossal," says Beady Eye frontman Liam Gallagher. “Manchester City fans are known for having a lot of style and the new shirt looks mega. I love the soundwave idea and the Mod-inspired collar looks proper smart.”

“'Blue Moon’ is a top tune and has been City's song for as long as I can remember,”
adds Liam. “It's been covered by loads of people but the only good one until now was the one Elvis did. I hope the fans buzz off our version and sing along to it at the stadium.”

To celebrate the launch, Beady Eye have joined up with director Charlie Lightening to record a video for their version of “Blue Moon” which segues into their new single “The Beat Goes On.”
