However, Barat has now admitted that although he and Doherty have no current plans to work together at the moment, he expects the situation to change in the future.
“I’m always out with Pete,” he said. “Just sometimes I’m out with Pete in a visible place and other times not. We had a good chat and we’re both getting on fine.”
He went on to add:
“We’re both doing different things, [but] I’m sure at some point we’ll pick up where we left off when it’s needed.”
Last week, it was reported that The Libertines had tentatively agreed to release a ‘lost’ album featuring songs that were recorded before the band signed to Rough Trade in 2001. The tracks are owned by their former drummer, Paul ‘Mr Razzcocks’ Dufour, who said the recordings could be released as “early as June”.
