Carl Barat and the Jackals release ‘Glory Days’ as free download

This weekend will see a reformed Libertines take to the stage for three huge shows at London’s Alexandra Palace.

As you might have guessed, Far Out will be there to soak up the action. But singer and guitarist Carl Barat has got a new project of his own on the way.

News of Carl Barat and the Jackals’ inception surfaced earlier this year and the band have already played a string of shows together.

However, brand new track ‘Glory Days’ is the first glimpse of the as yet untitled debut album, which is due for release in early 2015.

It sees Barat attempt to harness a slightly heavier sound than on the Libertines’ iconic pair of albums and his efforts with former side project Dirty Pretty Things.

To get your hands on the free download for a limited period, head to the band’s website. Or alternatively, have a listen here.
