The latest artists added to The Beatles' cover album are none other than The Libertines ex-band mates, Pete Doherty and Carl Barat. The two will perform a duet for the song "A Day in the Life".
On taking the project Doherty said, "I heard about it and thought this would be a great thing to do with Carl, so I called him - you know, let bygones, auld lang syne and everything. He thought it was a great idea, so here we are. Sgt Pepper is one of my favorite albums. Some things strike you down dead when you first hear them and this album is one of those things. It just sucked me in and I decided I wanted to be in The Beatles."
The pair entered the studio in a west London studio on June 15, their first joint project since April 2004. The result of the collaboration premiered on Radio 2 on June 16.
This song is part of the tribute to The Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" that also features covers from Oasis, Kaiser Chiefs, Travis, Razorlight and many others.
