Following a stellar live “surprise” slot at Glastonbury last weekend, The Libertines unveiled brand new single, “Gunga Din”, which got its first play on BBC Radio 1 last night.
The track, is the lead single from forthcoming LP, “Anthems For Doomed Youth”, scheduled to drop on Friday 4th September 2015. The album is their third studio effort and first in over a decade, following their 2002 debut, “Up The Bracket” and their self-titled sophomore LP, which was released in 2004.
The announcement rounds off an incredible year for the recently reformed band, joint-fronted by Pete Doherty and Carl Barat; they played a sold-out show at London’s Hyde Park last summer and a UK Tour which included a sold out (and very sweaty) show at Glasgow’s Barrowland and a triple treat at London’s Alexandria Palace.
“Gunga Din” is available now.
“Anthems Of Doomed Youth” is out on Friday 4th September 2015.
