According to an interview that musician Pete Doherty gave to NME, his new solo album will feature lyrics written by his dear friend, the late Amy Winehouse. Though Winehouse denied ever dating Pete (“We’re just friends” she was quoted as saying in an interview with Rolling Stone), the two were always close and often seen together.
In that same Rolling Stone interview, Winehouse recounted how she had suggested to Doherty that they do a concept album together but he wasn’t fond of the idea. Doherty informs NME that the song ’Bird Cage’ featuring singer Suzi Martin will contain lyrics written by Winehouse. The acoustic version of the song will also run with the credits during a movie starring Doherty called Confession Of A Child Of The Century.
