The Libertines reunited last year and announced plans to release their first new album in over ten years. We haven’t seen too much progress since then, but at their headlining show at the Netherlands’ Best Kept Secret festival last night, they debuted the dubby new song “Gunga Din.” “I said we should play some new songs but they said we shouldn’t play any ’til the album comes out,” co-frontman Pete Doherty announced. “We’re going to give you one but it’s got to be a secret. Put your phones off and we’ll see how it turns out.” Luckily for us, a few fans kept their phones on, and you can watch the footage below.
There’s no word on a title or release date for the new album yet, but it’s supposedly coming out sometime this year.
