Peter Doherty has once again hinted a Libertines reunion could be close after revealing he and fellow ex-bandmate Carl Barat discussed the idea after a gig together in May.

Speaking to The Times newspaper, Doherty said: “Basically we had a good couple of hours. We were up all night together. Yeah, it was amazing really. I think we’re gonna make a record, and tour. Get the Libertines to take it to the next step, next stage. Next year.”

He also discussed his feelings after the band carried on for a short while without him, telling him he could return to the band only when his drug problems were under control. “My heart caved in. I was destroyed, he said. “Not by the fall-out, but by seeing him on Top of the Pops doing Don’t Look Back Into the Sun without me. The very idea of them doing a gig without me was just, like…whatever happened, whatever he did, I would never, ever do a gig without him and call myself the Libertines.”

Doherty has recently released his first solo record, and revealed he already has plans in place for a follow up: “I just see ‘Grace/Wastelands 2′,” he said. “I think I’ve got a ‘Harvest’ in there. I keep getting flashes of it, even if it’s just for a couple of minutes.”

Doherty will be performing at this year’s V Festival, which takes place on the weekend of 22nd and 23rd of August.
