LONDON (Reuters) - Liam Gallagher and his new band Beady Eye are releasing their first single "Bring the Light" as a free download, following other artists who have given their music away for free to maximize their audience.

The song will be available from 1000 GMT on their website www.beadyeyemusic.com on Wednesday, November 10, while the album, which was recorded over the summer, will hit stores in 2011.

Gallagher, who was the frontman for 1990s supergroup Oasis, has teamed up with former bandmates Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock.

His brother, the songwriter and guitarist Noel, quit Oasis in 2009, citing differences with Liam.
