Carl Barat is performing a DJ set on New Year's Eve.

The former frontman of The Libertines and Dirty Pretty Things is playing at This Feeling at London's Vibe bar. It's the first news from Barât since he announced he had almost finished recording his new solo album, the follow-up to 2010's self-titled debut.

Back in August, Barât confirmed via a lengthy Facebook post that he had been working with The Bronx's Joby Ford in America and that both Beastie Boys drummer Fredo Ortiz and Miike Snow frontman Andrew Wyatt would appear on the record. No release was mentioned although he did say he was listening to final mixes of the album. He wrote: "It would seem that my relationship with my guitar is all patched up and further reinforced like what tends to happen with broken bones."

On New Year's Eve he will be joined by Reverend And The Makers, who will premiering new songs from forthcoming album 'Thirty Two' and The Rifles, who release their fourth album 'None The Wiser' in January.

Past guests at the New Year's Eve event have included Kasabian, Shaun Ryder, ex Who & Oasis drummer Zak Starkey, Miles Kane and Adam Ant. There will also be performances from The Dirty Rivers, The IC1s and The Mono Polys, and a DJ set from Goldie Lookin' Chain's Maggot, Beady Eye's tour DJ Arveene and This Feeling residents. Tickets are available from This Feeling, priced £20, along with free downloads of some of the acts performing.
