For those who already heard it, what's your take on it?
I really like it, the production is superb, arguably the best a Gallagher has ever had. It really lifts the song to another level. Fortunately this isn't a mediocre song that doesn't go anywhere but sounds nice thanks to the production (like Flick of the Finger). The song has a solid enough structure, and the production just blows me away!
Nice one, guys! You've got me excited for the album...

it's great for me, cause i never would have expected something like this by a Gallagher especially Liam, who was always very 60s and stuck in this direction. the song itself will grow on me i think. I prefer "Flick of the Finger", but "Second Bite of the Apple" is great too! i'm really interested how they are going to playe both of these live, cause the Horns are pretty important to it.
its a lot different to what the band usually create. the song itself is kinda b side material, not much actually, don't know if it a grower or what but at first listening i don't like it too much, especially for the first single

i think it's great to release something like this as a single, cause it seems like a statement. DGSS was just trying to hard to be single filled big chorus rock album, but the new stuff from BE seems brave and interesting. DGSS had songs that were fun for the first 10 listens but then you forgot them, these i think are growers, altough i have to admit, that i'm not that blown away by "Second bite of the apple" too
Love the production. Think Liam's vocals are great. Think the lyrics especially the 1st 2 lines are very poor. Tickle my feet with the NME? Overall much prefer flick of the finger. Still Liam's voice could take any song from being average to really good.
Would I ever leave this company? Look, I’m all about loyalty. In fact, I feel like part of what I’m being paid for here is my loyalty. But if there were somewhere else that valued loyalty more highly… I’m going wherever they value loyalty the most.

hmmm only listened to it once so far. Production is cool, its nice having something different, theres a lot of space left in the song. The problem for me is just the weakness of the actual song. I still think the album will be decent and I like FOTF but Beady Eyes main problem is they cant write great. I do really like some of Liams songs, he for me is by far has the best head for melody, his lyrics are shocking though.
Yea, I don't want to say it's not "single material" in the sense that I'm expecting a big hit or TSOTL part two as someone mentioned. But I do think the purpose of a single is to turn heads and to be that song that gets non fans and fans alike, excited for an album. And I don't know if this song does it.
I'm not blown away by it. I think the song itself, like FOTF, is weak. But there are a lot of good elements working in its favor. Overall it seems like a good song. Not great or amazing, but good, solid. However not a "single", in the sense of wanting it to knock me off me off my feet.
AdidasNG72: Seeing as BHN is my favourite album of all time, yes I agree 100%. BHN is a unique masterpiece in its own right, and something that will never be attempted by another band ever again, as no band will ever be as big as Oasis again.

shirleyroadshow: I gave the band a slot on my roadshow for ITV telethon production in June 1992. My brother worked with Boneheads brother Martin Arthurs and we were producing a 24 hour on/off LIVE event. The band were very much together at that time!

BugmenAndBoxes: I was catching up on the Matt Morgan podcast and got to the part where Noel refuses to let Matt tell the story of how Dead In The Water was written, but does mention it was written in response to thinking he could one up a song he heard... Bold?

World71R: It might be Once. That was directly aimed tied into Liam's relationship with Noel and both songs have that ballad feel to them.
