Carl Barat says that he has been writing new material to possibly play with The Libertines at their reunion gigs this summer.

The band have so far been quiet over whether they will write or record any new material together but, in a video interview at Glastonbury with NME, Barat said he's currently got a new song in mind.

"We haven't done any preparation yet, apart from being in touch," Barat said of the band's reunion plans. "I'm sending Pete a song, I must email that today – maybe we'll do something with that."

Barat added that he thinks the band's Reading & Leeds Festival shows this August are "going to be great", and also spoke of his new solo album, much of which he debuted at a gig at Worthy Farm's Leftfield stage on Friday night (June 25).

"It feels totally different – essentially it's a lot more selfish. It comes from the heart and it's a different sound," he explained.
