Doherty is currently on tour in Europe with The Libertines and will appear with Carl Barât at John Cale’s performance of ‘The Velvet Underground & Nico’ in Paris on April 3. He is also expected to release the follow up to 2009 debut ‘Grace/ Wastelands’ at some point in 2016.
It was reported earlier this year that the album has the working title ‘Flags Of The Old Regime’. A single, ‘The Whole World Is Our Playground’, will be released on limited edition 12” vinyl on Record Store Day (April 16).
‘Flags Of The Old Regime’ is the name of an Amy Winehouse tribute single Doherty released in 2015 with proceeds going to the Amy Winehouse Foundation. See below for footage of that song being performed acoustically.
