Pete Doherty has revealed that working on the new Babyshambles album "energised" him.

Speaking to NME in an in-depth interview in the brand new issue, available digitally and on newsstands from tomorrow (July 24), Doherty reveals his thought process prior to recording new album 'Sequel To The Prequel'.

Doherty said: "I just thought, 'Fuck. Where have I been? Why have I not been getting it together?' We've gotta get these new songs together, we've gotta play. I just feel energised by it all. Really I do."

Babyshambles release their new album on September 2 with a single, 'Nothing Comes To Nothing', out on August 26. Speaking to NME about the album, Doherty recently said: "I don’t want this to be half arsed, I want to get up there and really fucking smash it out. Babyshambles aren’t back – this band has always been here."

Babyshambles also today (July 23) released another taster of the album – click below to listen to the track 'Farmer's Daughter'.
