Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher’s new single ‘Too Good For Giving Up’ has been released in support of a charity campaign encouraging men to talk about their mental health.
All UK profits from his latest single will be donated to the Talk Club charity for six months.
The rocker has asked fans to talk about their mental health by teaming up with the charity to share the song’s message. He will also be answering questions about mental health through the charity’s Twitter account.
“We all know someone affected by suicide, which sadly seems to be at an all-time high,” Gallagher said. “I’ve lost many people far too early and it’s important to talk. I’m really pleased to be able to help in any way with this song.”
Ahead of the song’s premiere, the singer shared a photo of himself on Instagram, asking fans: “How are you? Out of 10?”
The song’s poignant lyrics include the line: “Remember you belong here as much as anyone. Even when you’re just about to break.”
The track’s video features actor David Jonsson and was filmed in Gallagher’s home city of Manchester and aims to capture the daily struggle of depression.
The single has received many positive comments on social media with one fan commenting: “Gorgeous song and gorgeous music video. Thank you, Liam, for talking about this cause, this subject that is so important.”
Talk Club founders Ben Akers and Gavin Thorpe say the track has helped fans to discuss their own experiences with mental health issues.
“Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 50 and Liam is a hero to many of that generation,” they said. “So, to be collaborating with him on something that raises the awareness of Talk Club, and gets men talking and improving their mental fitness, will save lives.”
Talk Club provides a male community of talking groups, sports clubs, and therapy, both in person and online, with the aim of preventing suicide.
Liam Gallagher will take over the charity’s Twitter account to discuss mental health issues between 11am and midday on Thursday 13 October.
