Liam Gallagher says his songs with his new band are better than Oasis.
The 37-year-old English singer, who has Irish-born parents, has been working with every member of Oasis, except brother Noel who quit the group in August, on fresh material and plans to have an album out by July.
He told MTV Italy: "We've been demoing some songs that we've had about, that we've had for a while. Just doing that, on the quiet, not making a big fuss about it.
"After Christmas we might go in the studio and record them and hopefully have an album out in July.
"We'll do it in a different kind of way now. I'll try and reconnect with a new band, new songs, and I'm feeling confident about the songs.
"I'm feeling a million per cent confident that they could be better than Oasis."
The band broke-up last summer after Liam's older brother Noel quit following a backstage fight before a concert in Paris, France, which saw them smash up each other's guitars.
However, Liam believes his guitarist sibling used the fight as an excuse to leave so he could work on his own solo project.
He explained in an interview with Italian radio station Radio Deejay: "To be quite honest, I think Noel wanted out.
"We had an argument - but we've had bigger ones, about more important people. Basically, I think he wanted out, wanted something different, but he hadn't got the b***s to tell the band or the fans."
