Pete Doherty recently revealed that working on the new Babyshambles album "energised" him. Speaking to NME, Doherty said: "I just thought, 'Fuck. Where have I been? Why have I not been getting it together?' We've gotta get these new songs together, we've gotta play. I just feel energised by it all. Really I do."
Babyshambles release the single 'Nothing Comes To Nothing' on August 26. Speaking to NME about the album, Doherty added: "I don’t want this to be half arsed, I want to get up there and really fucking smash it out. Babyshambles aren't back – this band has always been here."
'Sequel To The Prequel' was recorded at Question Du Son in Paris and mixed at The Bunker in London with Stephen Street. It follows 2007's 'Shotter's Nation' and the band's 2005 debut, 'Down In Albion'.
