Liam Gallagher debuts Once video from new Acoustic Sessions EP

Liam Gallagher is debuting a video for a demo version of his 2019 single, “Once”, from the surprise-released “Acoustic Sessions” EP, which hit stores on January 31 without much advance promotion.

Directed by Charlie Lightening, the clip stars former French soccer star-turned-actor Eric Cantona as “The King”, with the former Oasis frontman playing the role of “The Butler/Chauffeur.”

“I’m absolutely thrilled to have Eric Cantona, the last Rock n roll footballer, star in my video for ‘Once’,” says Gallagher. “Songs like this don’t come around very often and neither do football players like him.

“This is the original demo. It’s my favorite version; it’s silky smooth and it’s fizzy bubblech,”
he added before dropping a Beatles reference: “Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream!”

“Acoustic Sessions” also features seven songs from last fall’s MTV Unplugged broadcast, including four tracks from Gallagher’s second album, “Why Me? Why Not”, alongside three Oasis tunes.

2019’s “Why Me? Why Not” topped the UK charts to deliver the rocker his second straight solo No. 1 record in his homeland.

Gallagher will launch his 2020 live schedule in Stockholm, Sweden on February 2.
