His song for Amy Winehouse gets a sombre black and white treatment.
Libertines fever is building ahead of their summer shows and prospective third album but Pete Doherty recently flew solo to honour a late friend of his.
'Flags Of The Old Regime' is the newly-clean Doherty's tribute to Amy Winehouse and all proceeds from it will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity which helps youngsters struggling with alcohol and drug misuse.
Former Babyshambles bassist Drew McConnell plays on the track, with Jamie Morrison, Stephen Large and producer Stephen Street also chipping in.
The meditative video is now with us. Give it a watch and purchase the track (out March 6) if you like what you hear.

It’s been quite a year for PETE DOHERTY, the former Libertines frontman, and now leader of Babyshambles. 2005 featured a series of drug busts, failed rehab attempts, the tabloid witch hunt of his girlfriend Kate Moss, several non-appearances and live shows that fluctuated between agonising and ecstatic... oh, and the small matter of a debut album. As hotpress went to press, the news broke that Doherty had been busted yet again, barely two days out of an Arizona clinic. hotpress talks to Doherty’s label boss, Rough Trade founder Geoff Travis, tour photographer Danny Clifford, and former Babyshambles drummer Gemma Clarke, for the insiders' view on what’s becoming an increasingly sad and fearful saga.Read More
