Carl Barat hopes to work with Pete Doherty on new album
Carl Barat has revealed that he’s invited Pete Doherty to appear on his upcoming new album.
The 34-year-old, who is currently working on the follow-up to his 2010 self-titled solo debut, told XFM that he hopes his former Libertines bandmate will be able to contribute to the record once he comes out of rehab:
“I spoke to Pete before he went to rehab in Thailand and there could be something happening.
“When he gets back hopefully we’ll be on the same page and we’ll take it from there.”
The Basingstoke guitarist, who has formed and disbanded Dirty Pretty Things, appeared in BBC3 comedy Dead Boss and written an autobiography since The Libertines split, went on to admit he’s always looking for new challenges:
“I’m always hungry for something else. I’m hoping that the album will be done by the end of the year.”
