The English singer-songwriter is expected to release his second studio album at some point this year.

Although the record has remained untitled to this day, Gallagher hinted at a potential name on social media.

“WHY ME? WHY NOT?,” he wrote on Twitter, without sharing any detail about the meaning of the post.

One fan speculated that it referred to Gallagher’s forthcoming album, to which the rocker replied “we have a winner.” He later confirmed the information in another tweet.

Several fans pointed out that each image seems to hold clues about the possible release of a new single on June 7 — just one day after the world premiere of Gallagher’s documentary As It Was.

The singer also posted on Instagram a picture of a billboard that reads “It’s coming round like a Shockwave — Liam Gallagher,” taken in the streets of his native Manchester.

The billboard fueled speculation that the lead single of the forthcoming album would be titled Shockwave.

Last weekend, Gallagher confirmed on social media that his second solo record, which will follow his 2017 As You Were, was finished. He didn’t share any details about a forthcoming release date.
