The Libertines to release new album next year

After their triumphant return at London's Hyde Park last weekend, The Libertines will soon be stepping into the studio for the first time in over a decade to record a new album.

Carl Barat made the announcement in a recent interview with NME, in which has states that the band have been considering making new material for some time and are planning to head to Germany to record the new record.

When pressed for a release date, Barat said,"Next year, it has to be. I don't wanna just go on the road because then you'll get cabin fever and have an epic fallout. So yeah, I want to keep something fresh coming in. We just need to find the time."

Pete Doherty is also excited about the prospect of working with his bandmates again, likening it to when they decamped to France to record their generation-defining 2004 album 'The Libertines'. "For some reason in my head, I'm thinking October, November time," he said. "That's what will have to happen. Basically, it'll have to be like Paris, but in Hamburg, and for a bit longer. I'm well up for it."
