"He's a Liar" was the first single from The Bee Gees album Living Eyes released in 1981. It had been approximately two years since the last Bee Gees single had been released. Even though 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 six consecutive number-one singles in the US, "He's a Liar" peaked at #30 in the states, 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.
A version with a slightly longer intro was released as a 12-inch single and later on the Japan only compilation Rare Collection.
