Pete Doherty says Jack White wants to produce the new Libertines album
Pete Doherty has revealed that Jack White has told him he would like to produce The Libertines' comeback album.
Doherty, who was speaking to French radio station D8, claimed that Jack White has expressed an interest in working with the band on their new album, saying: "Jack White says he'd like to do it. I'd love him to do it, it would be amazing, but I don't want to get too hopeful".
The Libertines reunited earlier this summer for a second time and played a successful headline show at London's Hyde Park. They have since spoken about their plans to record a brand new album, which would be their first since their 2004 self-titled album.
On both their previous studio albums, the band have worked with The Clash guitarist Mick Jones as producer, but he has so far not been linked with a return.
The Libertines will play three huge London shows later this month, headlining London's Alexandra Palace on September 26th, 27th and 28th as part of a European tour.
