Speaking to BEC-Tero, Pete Doherty discussed how The Libertines are recording their new album in Thailand in a video that was shot last month. In the video, Doherty said, "Carl's [Barat] come out, he's gone back, he's come out again. But he doesn't want me... he doesn't want to work with me in London, basically. He's made that clear. I think he was surprised and pleased at how well it went, working here, away from everything, and how inspired it was. So it's just a question of him getting back out here. Rather than picking up where we left off, which was a bit of a sour time, actually, we've gone right back, to when we first got together and were writing, when things were a lot more positive and exciting."
