On his new single “Flags of the Old Regime”, Pete Doherty pays tribute to the late, great Amy Winehouse. Morose yet insightful, the track sees The Libertines member front and center, crooning with a heavy heart as strings seem to weep in unison behind him. It was produced by Stephen Street and features Babyshambles’ Drew McConnell on bass, Stephen Large on keys, and Jamie Morrison on drums. Listen in below.
“Flags of the Old Regime” is officially out on March 9th, and all proceeds will benefit the Amy Winehouse foundation, a nonprofit that works to prevent drug and alcohol misuse among young people.
In related news, The Libertines are currently working on new material, with hopes to release an album sometime this year.
