Former Oasis star Liam Gallagher has threatened to walk away from music for good if his new album with Beady Eye flops.

The singer formed the band after the Wonderwall hitmakers split in 2009 following a backstage bust-up between Gallagher and his guitarist brother Noel in Paris, France.

Their debut album, Different Gear, Still Speeding, was released in 2011 to a muted reaction from fans and sold a disappointing 700,000 copies.

The rockers have opted for a dramatic change in style for their second album Be, which is released next month (Jun13), and Gallagher has revealed he might retire from music if this record also flops.

He tells rock magazine Q, "Well, if we're barking up the wrong tree with this record, I don't know if I can be a**ed (bothered) barking up it again. I'll never be a plumber, I'll never be a fashion designer. Maybe I'd just sail off into the distance and enjoy my life, instead of worrying what some spotty little t**t from (English town) Hastings thinks about the record.

"But the album's gonna come out, hopefully people'll like it, and business as usual will be resumed."
