Liam Gallagher's eagerly anticipated second solo album Why Me? Why Not. was written by Liam with producers Andrew Wyatt and Greg Kurstin and recorded in Los Angeles and at RAK Studios in London. Wyatt and Kurstin previously contributed writing and production to Liam's all-conquering debut solo album As You Were, and Liam was keen to get even deeper with them this time. As a result, Why Me? Why Not. is a clear upgrade on As You Were but not a radical departure. Liam explains: "I wrote some songs on my own for the last album, but this time it's all co-writes. Reason being is I want it to be even better than ‘As You Were'. I know my strengths and I know my limitations. I'm an ok songwriter, but I'm a great singer and frontman. I want the second album to be a step-up because the hardest thing to do is to make something the same, only better. So that's what we've done." Lead single "Shockwave" sees rock's finest frontman making a typically full-throttle return.
