The Babyshambles frontman also explained why the two posted a video of themselves handling newborn mice on the internet.
Claiming Winehouse is currently “recording loads of new stuff”, Doherty told BBC News: “I kind of took a bit of a back seat. She said: ‘Listen to this new song, listen to this new song, record this, record this’.
“I’ve got a truckload of some of her stuff and I’m going through it.”
Commenting on the controversy surrounding the pair’s YouTube video, which they dubbed ‘Winemouse’, Doherty said: “One of the mice gave birth, didn’t it? I think it was Jennifer. She was really fond of them.”
The Babyshambles singer also explained how he wished to take a small break from performing after his release from prison, but then performed with the band at London‘s Kentish Town Forum shortly after (May 13), saying: “I thought I was going to have a bit of time doing nothing at all. That was the plan but I was straight back into things.”
