Pete(r) Doherty to release solo debut on March 24

Having just hit his 30th birthday, the famously unstable (musically and otherwise) Peter Doherty will release his solo debut album, Grace/Wasteland, on March 24. The album shows a more relaxed and laid-back side of Doherty than we've seen before with Libertines or Babyshambles, mixing folk, blues, and classic pop in a charming set of 12 tracks, all of which you can hear on his MySpace right now! His new, more mature, style should once again make Doherty the subject of scrutiny, but hopefully the attention will be focused more on the music than his personal life this time around.

You can also download the song "New Love Grows on Trees" from the upcoming album by providing some info at EMI. Either way, make sure you take the time to give Grace/Wasteland a listen.

Track list:

Last Of The English Roses
1939 Returning
A Little Death Around The Eyes
Through The Looking Glass
Sweet By and By
