Manchester City have made their biggest signing of the summer by landing rock star fan Liam Gallagher to launch the new home kit.
The light blue shirt, designed by Umbro, features a soundwave graphic of supporters singing the team's famous anthem Blue Moon.
And Gallagher's band Beady Eye have recorded a special version of the song which mixes into their new single, The Beat Goes On.
Former Oasis singer Gallagher said: 'I've been a City fan since I was a kid so to be involved with the launch of a new kit is colossal. Manchester City fans are known for having a lot of style and the new shirt looks mega. I love the soundwave idea and the Mod-inspired collar looks proper smart.
'Blue Moon is a top tune and has been City's song for as long as I can remember. It's been covered by loads of people but the only good one until now was the one Elvis did. I hope the fans buzz off our version and sing along to it at the stadium.'
David Blanch, senior designer at Umbro, commented: 'You can go anywhere in the world and people will know two things about Manchester: football and music. For the new Manchester City home shirt, we wanted to combine the elements of football and sound in a new and original way.
'Our starting point was the club's anthem, Blue Moon. When fans are singing Blue Moon, it becomes more than just a song – it's a connection between the fans and the players.
'We went into the Stadium to record a section of the fans singing the song. From this recording, we extracted an audio clip and created a soundwave graphic which is used within the shirt. One of the most powerful ways in which any fan can positively influence a football match is through sound.
'We've harnessed that and made it part of the Manchester City's home kit. This is a truly innovative football strip.'
The new Manchester City home kit for 2011/12 is available for pre-order now and will be on sale from July 22. Visit umbro.com
