In October 2020, Carl Barat spoke Granthshala To discuss an update on his long-awaited follow-up to 2015’s Anthems for Doomed Youth.

“It is going well, but it has become difficult with COVID,” explained Barat. “We started writing here, and he was going really well but John [Hassall, bass] is in Denmark and Pete [Doherty] is in France. It has been a bastard to travel.

“We’re really looking forward to getting back on this. We’re all writing and it’s all positive. We’re just waiting to come back and stuff stuff, bas kab ki baat hai. It would be nice if we could put it here.” We can do it. It will mean a lot. We have never been more educated. We just need to come together and do it.”
