Speaking to Rolling Stone UK about their new album, and how their personal relationships have changed in the near-decade since their last record.

“I feel like being together and doing what we do without any distractions has naturally brought us together. We’ve got so much in common, and we’ve shared so much, and our chemistry together is unchanging. At this time, we’re in the best possible place I think we can be,” Carl Barât told us.

Pete Doherty added: “I think I’m just a little bit more relaxed these days. Without the fug, the sleeplessness, and the frenzy and always looking to score drugs. That’s all gone, but the lust for still trying to find the perfect song and turning to Carl and saying, ‘What have you got, turn out your pockets’ when it comes to song ideas. And then there’s the business side too.”
