Liam Gallagher has secured his fourth solo UK number one album with his latest release, C’MON YOU KNOW.

The news was announced this evening (Friday) ahead of the former Oasis frontman taking the stage for the first of his two nights at Knebworth Park.

Rock icon Gallagher, 49, has previously achieved the top spot as a solo artist with debut album As You Were in 2017, follow-up Why Me? Why Not. in 2019, and his MTV Unplugged live release in 2020.

Liam Gallagher released his third studio album ‘C’MON YOU KNOW’ on May 27, 2022.

The Manchester-born singer also boasts a second simultaneous new entry on the official albums chart top five today (June 3), with his latest live album, Down By The River Thames, sitting at number four.

Liam posted a video on his Instagram page thanking fans for buying the two releases.

He posted: "Thanks 🙏 to everyone who bought C'mon you know and Down by the River Thames No1 and No4 in the charts whoever said Rock n Roll is dead needs a good slap 👋 with a wet sock 🧦 anyways thanks once again LG x"

The former Oasis star’s recent success on the Official Charts Company album charts draws him level with brother Noel, with 12 career No.1 albums.
