|Bee Gees singles chronology|
"He's a Liar" was the first single from The Bee Gees album Living Eyes released in 1981. It had been approximately 2 years (an eternity in that era) since the last Bee Gees single had been released and although this song sounded nothing like the Bee Gees' disco-era singles, the backlash had pigeonholed the Bee Gees as a disco act and radio stations were reluctant to play any new Bee Gees music. After 6 consecutive number-one singles, "He's a Liar" barely cracked the top 40, peaking at #30 in the US, which was a far cry from the dizzying heights of their success in the late '70s.
Unlike the last three Bee Gees albums which included primarily their established, longstanding studio & touring band, "He's a Liar" features an array of studio musicians; Don Felder of The Eagles on lead guitars, Harold Cowart on Bass, Steve Gadd on Drums and Richard Tee on Piano, concluding the seasoned rhythm section.
A version with slight longer intro was released on 12 Inch Single and later on the Japan only compilation Rare Collection.
