The Libertines have shared their Shiver single.

The rockers - comprised of Pete Doherty, Carl Barât, Gary Powell and John Hassall - have shared the next take to come from their All Quiet On The Eastern Esplanade album, which is set for release on 8th March 2024.

The Alex Brown-directed video showcases the seaside funeral of a pearly king, shot in black and white, with The Libertines joining the mourners in their sharpest threads, which includes a cast of characters from their album sleeve.

The single was co-written by Pete and Carl and the latter explained: “Peter had a song and I had a song and we mashed them up and did it collaboratively.”

Pete added: "I would probably find it difficult to work out who did what because we were both there the whole time through its creation. It should really be called The Last Dream Of Every Dying Soldier, but everyone liked the title Shiver.”
