Pete Doherty unveils noirish video for Amy Winehouse tribute ‘Flags Of The Old Regime’ – watch

The black-and-white clip was filmed in Thailand

Pete Doherty has revealed the video to ‘Flags Of The Old Regime’, his charity single for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which aims to give young people a better understanding of drug and alcohol misuse.

The track will be officially released on March 9 on 7-inch vinyl and as a digital download.

Produced by Stephen Street, the song features Drew McConnell from Babyshambles and Helsinki on bass, Jamie Morrison on drums, Stephen Large on keys and Street on acoustic guitar and percussion, with strings arranged by John Metcalfe (Durutti Column).

The video was directed by Katia de Vidas and filmed at Karma Sound Studios in Thailand.

In a separate video (below), Doherty recently discussed his fruitless writing sessions with Winehouse. “She was quite a harsh critic,” he said. “Sometimes we’d get together to write songs and she’d say ‘Come on then, play us what you’ve got’ and I’d play a particular chord progression and she’d be like ‘Nah, it’s not really good is it Pete?’ So I was determined to use that particular chord progression,” Doherty said.

Pete Doherty will play two London gigs in one night this weekend. Tickets for the gigs at Brixton Jamm on February 22 are all sold out.
