Pete Doherty and Carl Barat share one of the most famous love-hate relationships in music, and it seems that once Pete returns from his rehab stint in Thailand that's set to continue as Carl wants his old Libertines mate to work with him in the studio on Barat's solo album.
Barat told Gordon Smart on his XFM show:"I'm always hungry for something else. I'm working really hard on a new solo album. I spoke to Pete before he went to rehab in Thailand and there could be something happening."
He added: "When he gets back hopefully we'll be on the same page and we'll take it from there. I'm hoping that the album will be done by the end of the year."
The pair infamously had to be kept apart by bouncers when recording The Libertines' self titled album, released in 2004. Doherty's heroin habit had caused Carl to kick him out of the band after Doherty was jailed for burgling his bandmate's flat.
Since that album, after which Doherty found himself out of the band again, they have reunited intermittently, most prominently returning with The Libertines in 2010. Doherty's personal problems and alleged drug use preventing a more sustained collaboration, but it appears now Carl is open to working with his old friend again.
