The first trailer for the new Pete Doherty documentary Stranger In My Own Skin has been released.

The film, which is set to debut at Zurich Film Festival, is directed by the Libertines frontman’s wife Katia deVidas, who is also known for her work in Doherty’s side project The Puta Madres.

It’s nw been confirmed that the film will hit UK cinemas from November 9, with a synopsis promising a no-holds-barred look at Doherty’s public and private battles with addiction.

The singer previously battled heroin addiction, but has been clean since 2019.

“Over a period of 10 years, the artist was intimately filmed by director-musician Katia deVidas who shot more than 200 hours of exclusive footage,” the synopsis states.

“Doherty shares, in his own words, his emotionally charged fight to overcome his demons as he emerges from darkness back into the light.”

The trailer, meanwhile, uses archival footage to take a look at Doherty’s days as a figure of public notoriety, before focusing on his redemption and sobriety.

Earlier this week, Libertines drummer Gary Powell also confirmed that fans can expect the next album from the group in early 2024.

He said: “We’ve just recorded our latest album. I think we do one every 10 years or so. Yes. So expect the next one to come from the grave! The album comes out in January [2024].”
