Peter Doherty Reveals New Track ‘Flags of the Old Regime’

Trouble Libertines star Peter Doherty has released a surprisingly delicate and beautiful new single ‘Flags of the Old Regime’ which you can stream in full below and might go some way to silencing any critics claiming he’s lost his knack for penning a tune. The singer is currently in Thailand receiving rehab treatment for his longstanding drug addiction.

Released on Monday 9th March through Walk Tall Recordings, the track is a tribute to his friend Amy Winehouse and is released in aid of the Amy Winehouse Foundation, who will also receive all proceeds from the profits of the single.

It’s an orchestral and lush offering that variously channels Lou Reed and old standard bearer Tony Christie – strange as it might sound, give it a spin; we’re not wrong.
