Pete Doherty has revealed that he and Carl Barat discussed plans to make an album and tour together after The Libertines reunited for a one-off gig in London in May.

The Babyshambles frontman has repeatedly outlined his desire to reform the band properly, but has not spoken about the discussions he and Barat have had until now.

However, he has now told The Times that the pair talked about returning to the studio in 2010 following their show at the Rhythm Factory, a tribute for late promoter Johnny Sedassy, who used to organise the band's shows.

"We had a good couple of hours [after the show]," he said. "We were up all night together. It was amazing really. I think we're gonna make a record and tour. Get The Libertines to take it to the next step, next stage."

Doherty also said that he had another solo album in mind – a follow-up to his 'Grace/Wastelands' record, which was released in March.

"I just see 'Grace/Wastelands 2'," he said. "I think I've got a 'Harvest' [classic Neil Young album] in there. I keep getting flashes of it, even if it's just for a couple of minutes."
