The magic of "Just Another Rainbow" was brought to life during an intense three-week recording stint in the heart of Los Angeles, helmed by the talented producer Greg Kurstin. Kurstin, not only the mastermind behind the production but also lending his bass expertise to the track, joined forces with drummer Joey Waronker to craft this musical masterpiece. Anticipation is high, as a tantalizing promise emerges from the press release, hinting at a future filled with new musical gems and the tantalizing possibility of live shows.
Sharing his admiration for Squire's prowess beyond the strings, Gallagher lauds the guitarist as not just a maestro but also an exceptional songwriter. "John's a top songwriter," Gallagher affirms. "It’s good to see him back writing songs and fucking good ones." His admiration doesn't stop at Squire's guitar skills, praising the profound melodies that resonate even when stripped down to their acoustic core.
Squire himself offers cryptic insights into the thematic essence of "Just Another Rainbow," hinting at a poignant narrative surrounding the intricacies of disappointment and desire. "To me, the most obvious take on 'Just Another Rainbow' is that it’s about disappointment, and the sentiment is that you never get what you really want," Squire muses. Yet, he wisely leaves the interpretation open to the listener's imagination, emphasizing the individual's unique experience and perspective in understanding the song's depth.
Excitement mounts as Gallagher tantalizes fans with a preview of an upcoming music video for the single, sparking further anticipation for the visual narrative that will accompany this melodic gem. The stage is set for a mesmerising journey, promising not just a fusion of musical brilliance but an immersive experience that transcends boundaries.
