“I’m really pleased to be able to help in any way with this song and will be partnering up with Talk Club on my track ‘Too Good for Giving Up’.”

Ahead of the video premier for the track, Liam took to his Instagram to share a black and white photo of him holding a piece of paper that reads: “How are you? Out of 10?”

The music video features actor David Jonsson who is known for his work in Industry and Deep State and was filmed in Gallagher’s home city, Manchester.
