Pete Doherty To Release Solo Debut In March

petedoughertycvcPete Doherty, the junkie ex-Libertine jail-dabbler, former Kate Moss shagger and hero of 2008 (well, at least according to the readers of the NME, which actually kind of makes sense), is set to release his debut solo album on March 24 via Astralwerks. Titled Grace/Wasteland, the 12-track LP features Blur’s Graham Coxon (on guitar for most of the album), Dot Allison (who co-wrote duet “Sheepskin Tearaway”) and poet/musician Peter “Wolfman” Wolfe (who co-wrote “Broken Love Song”), as well as musical backup from Doherty’s Babyshambles bandmates (guitarist Mick Whitnall, bassist Drew McConnell and drummer Adam Ficek). The album was recorded last autumn at London’s Olympic Studios and produced by Stephen Street (Babyshambles, Smiths, Blur). No word yet on any upcoming tour dates for Doherty to cancel, and Astralwerks stresses that Babyshambles has not broken up. Grace/Wasteland tracklisting after the jump.
