Libertines man delivers first offering from his new band
Glory Days, the first taste of the quartet's as-yet-untitled debut album, is now available from the band's official website as a free download.
Recorded in Los Angeles by Joby J. Ford, guitarist with acclaimed LA punks The Bronx, the song can also be heard below.
"I actually started making this record solo, but the long and short of it is I just didn’t like my own company," says Barat. "I was lucky, because I found a bunch of people who genuinely fit together as a gang."
The Carl Barat and The Jackals album is scheduled for a 2015 release via Cooking Vinyl.
