Pete Doherty has revealed the title of his forthcoming solo album.

The record, which is now set to be released on March 16, is called 'Grace/Wastelands'. A single, 'Last Of The English Roses', is released on March 9.

'Grace/Wastelands' features guest appearances from Blur's Graham Coxon, Dot Allison and Doherty's Babyshambles bandmates.

Speaking of Coxon's involvement, Doherty said in a statement: "I remember when I was about 15 and still listened to Pet Shop Boys and Chas & Dave, and some lad at school who was a bit of a mod lent me a Blur tape and it had on it a song called 'Bank Holiday. I was like, 'What's this?' I said to him, 'I liked that tape but that one song, it's a bit fast.' And he said, 'Yeah, it's punk. It depends what mood you're in.'

"And then something sort of clicked in me. I've always liked Coxon, it seems, and I don't know why."

He added: "I was absolutely horrified when he said he was actually a fan of some of the things I've done."

The tracklisting of Pete Doherty's solo album is:

'Last Of The English Roses'
'1939 Returning'
'A Little Death Around The Eyes'
'Through The Looking Glass'
'Sweet By And By'
'Palace Of Bone'
