Speaking to NME about The Libertines’ new music, Carl Barat said, “Fresh material has ‘always’ been the plan. 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.”
The band have already confirmed that they’ll be debuting songs at their London shows later on this month. Talking about the new songs Doherty said, “We were just working on one right now, before you came in. I can tell you that one of them has got this in it [makes a noise on a vintage typewriter].”
Before you scoff at that typewriter comment, Dolly Parton’s 9 to 5 has a great typewriter effect, Exhuming McCarthy by R.E.M. starts out with typewriters and a similar sound is produced by an old cash register on Pink Floyd’s Money.
