Libertines and Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty now goes by “Peter,” and he’s offered up a new single titled “Flags Of The Old Regime,” which premiered on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show today. The song will be released in March by Walk Tall Recordings with all of the proceeds benefitting the Amy Winehouse Foundation, whose statement of purpose is as follows:
The Amy Winehouse Foundation’s mission is supporting and empowering children and young adults in need through music therapy and music education and works to prevent the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people. We aim to support, inform and inspire vulnerable and disadvantaged young people to help them reach their full potential.
“Flags Of The Old Regime” is an undeniably heartbreaking tribute to the late, great songstress. Listen below.
“Flags Of The Old Regime” will be out 3/9 via Walk Tall Recordings.
