Liam Gallagher has reportedly teamed up with Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid to work on his music comeback.
The former Oasis frontman hasn't produced new music since the split of his band Beady Eye in 2014, and he had previously ruled out the possibility of a solo record.
The rocker has now changed his mind and has enlisted the help of Johnny from Snow Patrol, who Liam had previously branded "snore patrol" on social media, according to Britain's The Sun newspaper,
"It's all set to kick off with Liam, but this time it's about the music," a source said. "He's actually been rather savvy, getting on board some established and well-respected writers, like Johnny, despite his negative views on Snow Patrol previously.
"Liam still has the support of the hardcore Oasis following who will be keen to buy his records... Whether or not he can still attract other music lovers will be down to his new material."
Johnny, who is dating U.S. actress Courteney Cox, has previously written songs with Ed Sheeran and Harry Styles, for his first solo material outside of One Direction.
Liam, who is also reportedly working with The Raconteurs star Brendan Benson, wrote the disparaging tweet against Snow Patrol in 2012 when it was announced they were going on tour with his brother Noel's band the High Flying Birds.
He wrote, "Snore Patrol Noel Gallaghers high flying smurfs - who said rock n roll is dead. LG (sic)."
Liam, 43, had denied working on a solo album on Twitter earlier this year (16) and reportedly told a fan he had retired from the music industry. His brother Noel had been campaigning for Liam to go solo.
