Pete Doherty and Amy Winehouse recording ‘a truckload of stuff’

Babyshambles man also comments on 'Winemouse' video

Pete Doherty has confirmed that he is currently recording with Amy Winehouse.

The Babyshambles frontman also explained why the two posted a video of themselves handling newborn mice on the internet.

Claiming Winehouse is currently “recording loads of new stuff”, Doherty told BBC News: “I kind of took a bit of a back seat. She said: ‘Listen to this new song, listen to this new song, record this, record this’.

“I’ve got a truckload of some of her stuff and I’m going through it.”

Commenting on the controversy surrounding the pair’s YouTube video, which they dubbed ‘Winemouse’, Doherty said: “One of the mice gave birth, didn’t it? I think it was Jennifer. She was really fond of them.”

The Babyshambles singer also explained how he wished to take a small break from performing after his release from prison, but then performed with the band at London‘s Kentish Town Forum shortly after (May 13), saying: “I thought I was going to have a bit of time doing nothing at all. That was the plan but I was straight back into things.”

Babyshambles also took part in the charity Soccer Six football tournament this weekend (May 17-18), but lost 3-1 to Faithless in the final.
