Speaking about his first release since The Dirty Pretty Things split, Carl reckons new music is quite different to that of his old band.
“It’s a bit different. It’s a bit older – like myself really,” he told Newsbeat of the as-yet-untitled record. “It’s kind of naked, kind of stripped down. It’s more piano-based.
“It’s definitely different from The Libertines. It’s different from anything I’ve done before. It’s more me.”
We’re looking forward to it.
