Carl Barat's 'Naked' Album
Carl Barat's solo album is a deliberate departure from his usual work and is going to be ''more wordy''.
Carl Barat's solo album has a "naked" sound.
The former Libertines frontman wants the collection of songs to be a departure from what people know him for.
He said: "It will sound very different because I don't want to have loud electric guitars.
"I want to do something more wordy. Or at least where the words are more exposed. It's quite naked-sounding."
The 31-year-old also discussed his other successful band, Dirty Pretty Things, and revealed he used them to "hide behind".
He said: "I was trying to have the same spirit as The Libertines without the sparring leadership.
"And once you Take That away, you're dealing with a whole different thing. It was something to hide behind. And I chose to hide behind it because I'm intrinsically quite a lazy person.
"So I'm going to get rid of all of that, and then I've got no choice."
He told the Scotsman: "It's about cycles you can't break. Like the hold of a relationship coming back after years."
