Beady Eye frontman Liam Gallagher has launched an attack against Radiohead.

The singer took aim over the title and lyrics on the band's new album 'The King Of Limbs', which was inspired by a 1,000-year-old tree in Wiltshire's Savernake Forest.

“I heard that f*cking Radiohead record and I just go, 'What?!'” he told the Quietus.

“I like to think that what we do, we do f*cking well. Them writing a song about a f*cking tree? Give me a f*cking break! A thousand year old tree? Go f*ck yourself!

Gallagher added: “You’d have thought he’d have written a song about a modern tree or one that was planted last week. You know what I mean?”

The album's title is not the only tree reference on 'The King Of Limbs'.

'Separator', the final track, also includes the line: “The sweetest flowers and fruits hang from the trees, falling off the giant bird that's been carrying me.”

Beady Eye released their debut album 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' today (February 28).
