Carl Barat's 'naked' album

Carl Barat's solo album is a deliberate departure from his usual work and is going to be ''more wordy''.
Great deals on musical instruments

Carl Barat's solo album has a "naked" sound.

The former Libertines frontman wants the collection of songs to be a departure from what people know him for.

He said: "It will sound very different because I don't want to have loud electric guitars.

"I want to do something more wordy. Or at least where the words are more exposed. It's quite naked-sounding."

The 31-year-old also discussed his other successful band, Dirty Pretty Things, and revealed he used them to "hide behind".

He said: "I was trying to have the same spirit as the Libertines without the sparring leadership.

"And once you take that away, you're dealing with a whole different thing. It was something to hide behind. And I chose to hide behind it because I'm intrinsically quite a lazy person.

"So I'm going to get rid of all of that, and then I've got no choice."

As well as singing, Carl is taking up acting in Sam Shepard's 'Fool for Love' alongside actress Sadie Frost.

He told the Scotsman: "It's about cycles you can't break. Like the hold of a relationship coming back after years."
