The song was originally uploaded via The Libertines official Facebook page (where the band make the majority of their announcements) with the message "really great that Peter is doing this for such a worthy cause... love, life and music helps us grow and keeps us happy. You can do anything if you put your mind to it. Please buy the single when it's available! Carl, John and Gary x"
The track is officially released on 9 March.
The Libertines are reported to be recording a new album in Thailand, after news that they signed to Virgin EMI. The album is expected by the end of the year.
