Liam Gallagher met up with Simon Aldred of Cherry Ghost, who also helped pen Sam Smith's "Leave Your Lover
" and Avicii's "Waiting for Love
." Liam asked Aldred to write him a song of apology that was regretful but not desperate. Hearing the opening lines of Aldred's demo - "In my defence so my intentions were good. And heaven knows a place somewhere for the misunderstood" – the ex-Oasis frontman was instantly in.
"I'm not really that good at apologizing," Liam pointed out to Q
Magazine. "So I got someone else to do it for me."
