Carl Barat Talks New Libertines Music and Hyde Park
Carl Barat has spoken out about what to expect at the Libertines' upcoming reunion show at London's Hyde Park - but said that he has made few plans for new material in case they "go disasterously wrong."

Watch Gigwise video interview with Carl Barat below.

The band had previously suggested that they were hoping to have new songs to play to fans at the huge reunion gig at British Summer Time, but speaking to Gigwise backstage at the Ivor Novello Awards in London, Barat said they were very much playing it by ear.

"Well, we'll see," he replied. "I try not to make plans where the Libertines are concerned because usually it goes disasterously wrong, but we're meeting up to get together and whatever happens, happens.

"I don't really want to lay a bunch of new songs on people at that kind of event anyway, people wanna' sing along so maybe a few old ones - we'll see."

When asked if he had a separate process from writing new material for Libertines to that of his new solo project the Jackals, Barat said that he writes "just what I feel at the time, when I'm writing it."

The Libertines will be performing a headline set at British Summertime Hyde Park, London on 5 July, where they'll be joined by Graham Coxon, the Pogues, Spiritualized, Maximo Park, Wolf Alice and Swim Deep. There'll also be appearances from the Enemy, Reverend and the Makers, I Am Kloot, the Twang, Darlia, Cuckoolander, the View, Brownbear, Raglans and the Rifles.
