Guitar player Carl Barat has revealed he is in the process of coming up with new material for The Libertines.
The iconic indie band have decided to reform this year in order to play at the Reading and Leeds festivals, but until now have stayed quiet about whether any new tracks will be aired.
Speaking to NME at Glastonbury where Barat performed a solo show the musician revealed: "We haven't done any preparation yet, apart from being in touch.
"I'm sending Pete [Doherty] a song maybe we'll do something with that."
