Video: At Home With Pete Doherty

Pete Doherty has given NME an exclusive look around his Paris flat – scroll up to the top of the page and click to watch the video.

In the clip, the former Libertines rocker plays a version of The Strokes' 'The Modern Age' with the poetry of French writer Charles Baudelaire recited over the top, and shows us his record and book collections.

He then gives us a sneak peek of one of his journals, before locking NME in his toilet, which is decorated with nude pictures.

Earlier today, we revealed that Doherty is preparing to release a new solo record and has 12 songs ready for the album. Asked about his plans for a new LP, Doherty said that he owes record label EMI a new record and already has a producer, Adem Hilmi, in place for the album.

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.

To read the full interview with Pete Doherty, in which he discusses Amy Winehouse, his battle with drugs and The Libertines, pick up the new issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands and available digitally now.
