Pete Doherty has spoken about his plans to release new material and has revealed that he has 12 songs ready for a new solo album.

The former Libertines man, who is now residing in Paris, told NME in an exclusive interview that he has 12 songs written and is currently working on them with producer Adem Hilmi.

Asked about his plans for a new album, Doherty said that he owes record label EMI a new record and already has a producer in place for the album.

Speaking about his future release plans, Doherty said: "I keep getting told that we're [his solo team] under obligation to fulfill the contract with EMI, so we're looking to put a new album together."

He continued "His name [the producer] is Adem Hilmi and he works at Slaughterhouse Studios in Harlesden. He's taken my hard drive with a view to putting this album together. It'll be 12 songs."

Among the new tracks slated for inclusion on Doherty's second solo album are 'Gambling Man' and 'Cell Ceiling Blues'. His last solo album, 2009's 'Grace/Wastelands', was produced by Blur and Smiths cohort Stephen Street.
