Oasis singer Liam Gallagher has said he has spotted John Lennon’s rocking chair, which he owns, moving by itself.

The 46-year-old frontman is currently promoting documentary film Liam Gallagher: As It Was and has just announced his second solo LP Why Me? Why Not ahead of its release in September.

He told radio station Beats 1 that he owns the former Beatles star’s chair and that it “sometimes freak me out”.

“Sometimes I come downstairs and it’s rocking on its own,” he added.

Gallagher seemed less than bothered by the fact he doesn’t currently know where the chair is, which suggests it might be rattling around the streets of its own accord.

He said: “I’ve got Lennon’s rocking chair somewhere. Well I used to years ago, but I move house quite a bit, man, every couple of years, so I don’t know where...

“It’s probably in storage at the moment, which is a shame.”

Gallagher went on to explain how he had bought some of Lennon’s art from Yoko Ono, which provided the inspiration for the title of his new album.

The singer officially announced the release today on Instagram, having teased the title last month during an interaction with a fan.

Gallagher’s documentary film As It Was, following his return to the music world after years in the wilderness, was released last week to mixed reviews.

The Guardian called it an “extended corporate rebranding exercise” while The Telegraph deemed it “for superfans only”.

On the other hand, Little White Lies said the film is “uproariously entertaining” and NME referred to it as “an intimate portrait of an enduring force of nature”.

Why Me? Why Not? will be released on 20 September.
