Wolfman feat. Peter Doherty : For Lovers

Soulful, sublime...

Libertines man tugs at the heartstrings

Pete takes his hands from the rudder of the good ship Albion to release this lovelorn ballad. Still, it should be glaringly obvious - even to those without a passing interest in the Libs' never-ending soap opera - that this brilliant. Encased within the twinkling piano arrangements of old chum Wolfman, Pete proves himself capable of weaving both hope and honesty into the lining of

his exquisite melodies. That it's actually a bittersweet dedication to Wolfman's broken marriage and the romantics they'd watch from a Paddington station bar matters little - it's Pete's choked croak that musters the shivers. Soulful, sublime.
