Stream: The Libertines’ reunion album Anthems for Doomed Youth

Pete Doherty & co. return with their first LP in over 10 years


Today brings the release of The Libertines’ reunion album, Anthems for Doomed Youth, via Harvest Records/Virgin EMI. Spotify users can stream in full below.

Spanning 12 tracks, Anthems marks the UK rockers first in over a decade following their self-titled LP. The album sees frontmen Pete Doherty and Carl Barât reconvening after infamously having a falling out years back. Among the songs included are “Barbarians”, “Gunga Din”, “Glasgow Coma Scale Blues”, and the title track.

In his review of the album, Adam Kivel writes, “Much of the album rides that line between the pain of the past and the pleasure of having gotten through it. Consequently, it frequently lacks catharsis and powerful moments. Rather than dip into the depths or climb to the heights, Anthems sits in a gray middle.”
