Carl Barat’s new solo LP to “discuss kettling”

Artist News

Carl Barat

Perpetual stylish-kid-in-the-riot Carl Barat has said that his new solo LP, the successor to 2010’s ‘Carl Barat’, will take part of its theme from the recent protests and unrest in the UK.

In particular it’ll touch on the phenomenon of ‘kettling’, or so says Carl, who has spilled thus to the Daily Star: “It’s not a protest album, but it does discuss kettling – you can’t not write about that really”.

The Star also reports Barat is co-writing the as-yet untitled long player with singer-songwriter peers Ed Harcourt and Joseph Arthur. Though Carl doesn’t mention rehab escapee Pete Doherty, despite the latter claiming last month┬áthat the Libertines two had a mind to make music together in Paris. Shame, that.
