Pete Doherty to Use Amy Winehouse-Penned Lyrics on New Solo Album
Former Libertines frontman Pete Doherty told NME that he will use lyrics written by Amy Winehouse on one of the tracks on his upcoming solo album, his follow-up to 2009’s Grace/Wastelands.
The track, titled “Bird Cage,” will feature a duet with singer Suzi Martin. Doherty’s new film Confession of a Child of the Century will also feature an acoustic version of the track played over the credits.
In the NME interview about the album, Doherty said, “We’ve been cracking on. I’ve got a hard drive full of new songs and a few of them have taken more of a definite shape. Things that were ad libs and off the cuff, we’re putting more into traditional song structure.”
