It comes after The Libertines previously announced a trio of outdoor ‘Up The Bracket’ shows in Manchester (July 1), Hatfield (22) and Cardiff (August 5), as well as an indoor concert in Edinburgh (8).
“It’s been going well, but it’s been difficult with COVID,” he explained. “We started writing here [The Albion Rooms in Margate], and that was going really well but John [Hassall, bass] is in Denmark and Pete [Doherty] is in France. It’s been a fucker to travel.
“We’re just waiting to get back on it, really. We’re all writing and it’s all positive. We’re just waiting to get back and lay stuff down, it’s just a matter of when. It would be nice if we could do it here. That would make a lot of sense. We’ve never been readier. We just need to get together and do it.”
Since then, Doherty has launched a new collaborative project with the French musician Frédéric Lo. The duo are set to release their debut album, ‘The Fantasy Life Of Poetry & Crime’, next Friday (March 18).
