The Libertines set to release new album soon
The Libertines, an English rock band formed in 1997, have been working on new music in Jamaica.
Founding member Pete Doherty has confirmed that he and fellow front man Carl Barat have been in the Caribbean to work on some tracks for an upcoming album. Speaking with BANG Showbiz at the AIM Independent Music Awards 2022 in London, Doherty said: “We have just been in Jamaica, me and Carl, and we’ve got a new album on the way.”
He advised that he and his fellow band founder have had a “productive” summer working on new material ahead of the long-awaited fourth studio album. Doherty opened up about the special Margate bandstand show the group played last month to begin. ‘
20 YEARS SINCE DEBUT ALBUM
He revealed that the gig was poignant as The Libertines mark 20 years since the release of their debut album Up The Bracket. Quizzed on what he had been doing over the summer months, he said: “It’s been quite productive. Just trying to write some new songs.”
The 43-year-old musician said he spent many nights just sat with my guitar and his dog on that bandstand so it was special to play the full set. The awards ceremony returned at London’s Roundhouse in Camden.
