Pete Doherty Names Solo Album, Releases In Studio Video

Pete Doherty has gone and named his highly anticipated first solo record: Grace/Wasteland drops on March 17th, and will be preceded a week before by the single "Last Of The English Roses". Our take on the record is forthcoming, but we can tell you that we're enjoying very much indeed. In the meantime, you can check out some studio footage (above) that Doherty has released, containing interviews and excerpts from the record.

Sadly, thus far it doesn't appear that Doherty's promotion of the record will bring him to the States. He will be playing a string of UK dates in March, however. So if you find yourself in possession of a large number of frequent flier miles you need to purge, well, this could be just your ticket.
