The Libertines Drops New Music Video for “Run Run Run”
London-based rock band The Libertines, consisting of Pete Doherty (guitar/vocals), Carl Barât (guitar/vocals), John Hassall (bass) and Gary Powell (drums), has dropped a new music video for “Run Run Run”.
The song was released as the first single from their upcoming fourth studio album “All Quiet On The Eastern Esplanade” on October 12, 2023.
The video was directed by Alexander Brown, starring British actor Geoff Bell. The clip was filmed in Cliftonville, Margate and at the Libertines’ hotel The Albion Rooms.
The band lead singer Pete Doherty said of the song, “It’s about being trapped and trying to escape your dismal life, a bit like the man in Bukowski’s ‘Post Office’. The worst thing for The Libertines would be to get stuck in a ‘Run-run-run’ rut, constantly trying to relive our past.”
- The new album “All Quiet On The Eastern Esplanade” is set to be released on on March 8, 2024..
It is their first album in nine years since the 2015 album “Anthems for Doomed Youth”.
The album comprises 11-track, written by Pete Doherty, Carl Barât, John Hassall, and Gary Powell.
The band recorded the album with producer Dimitri Tikovoï at The Albion Rooms in Margate.
Pete Doherty said of the album, “A moment of rare peace and unity, with all the members contributing. I feel like we’ve completed a cycle of some kind as a band, and finally now we can add these songs to the set list, because we’ve got some bangers in there. Now we’ve opened the hotel and used the studio ourselves and it’s all worked out - more Libertines records? I should hope so!”
Carl Barât added, “Our first record was born out of panic, and disbelief that we were actually allowed to be in a studio; the second was born of total strife and misery; the third was born of complexity; this one feels like we were all actually in the same place, at the same speed, and we really connected.”
