Not so secret now...
In an interview with NME, Pete Doherty said that he is working on a secret solo album in Hamburg, Germany. He has been recording with producer Johann Scheerer. The album will be called Flags From The Old Regime.
He said: "I've got 10 tunes done now. There's that one song 'Down For The Outing', which I've had for a while now, but it's incredible - Johann's made it sound like a brand new song."
He said the album was recorded without his Babyshambles bandmates and with "kids around the studio" instead. He added: "There just seems to be a blockade against it, which I don't understand. I don't know what the deal is with EMI Publishing. I've been told not to tell anyone about the album, but I'm supposed to be someone who writes songs and makes records. Everybody thinks I'm up to no good here, but I'm not. It's a really clean place and I'm just trying to move forward - that's the truth."
