Liam previously said fans will get to witness the recording process for his debut solo LP, ‘As You Were’, which he recorded in Los Angeles with Adele’s producer Greg Kurstin and several songwriters, and his return to the stage two years ago.   

Commenting on the documentary, Liam said: ”As It Was’ is a documentary about my musical comeback. 

‘It covers the writing and recording of my first solo album, right through to playing it live for the first time in my hometown of Manchester and around the world. I hope you enjoy the film.’ 

Oasis split in 2009, after Liam’s older brother and ex-bandmate Noel quit following a backstage bust-up between the pair before a concert in Paris, France.  

Liam went on to form Beady Eye, but the group didn’t have much success with their two records; ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding’ and ‘BE’, so they parted ways in 2014. 

 After that Liam stepped back from the music industry for four years. 

A description of ‘As It Was’ stated that it ‘tells the emotional story of how one of the greatest rock frontmen went from the dizzying heights of his champagne supernova years in Oasis to living on the edge, ostracized and lost in the musical wilderness of boredom, booze and legal battles’. 

It adds: ‘The film depicts Liam emerging from Noel’s shadow, managing expectations from being in the biggest band in the world to starting alone again alone, stripped bare, with nowhere to hide.’ 

‘As It Was’ will be released on June 7 in the UK and Ireland via Altitude Film Distribution.
