If you happen to see Pete Doherty today, you should wish him a happy birthday. The former Libertines frontman turns 30 today and he's celebrating by releasing his first solo album, Grace/Wastelands. We've got the first single, "New Love Grows on Trees."
In the last year of his 20s, Pete managed to sell out his show at London's Royal Albert Hall and exhibit artwork in Paris. Grace/Wasteland, the first major endeavor of his 30s, features his Babyshambles bandmates as well as Blur's Graham Coxon, who Doherty said ended up playing on most of the tracks.
