Speaking to NME at the NME Awards 2020 earlier this month, Carl Barât confirmed that the band are currently working on new Libertines material.

The guitarist also gave an update on the status of The Albion Rooms, the band’s HQ and hotel which opened its bar and recording studio last summer.


“The Libertines now finally have a HQ,” Barât explained. “We’ve got a studio, a record label, two bars, a hotel and an industry. I’ve been working hard on it, but now it’s time to get in there and make a record.”
