Stranger In My Own Skin

Band songlist


Stranger In My Own Skin (previously known as "strangers") is a Babyshambles song which was officially released in 2013, on their third album, Sequel To The Prequel as a bonus track.

In an interview on Belgium television in August 2009, Peter Doherty said that there where a couple of new songs he was working on, including one called Strangers. Doherty stated that the only lyrics he had worked out for the song so far were; "We're strangers in our own skin". Four videos were later uploaded to Doherty's YouTube account; "stranger in my own skin take one", "stranger take 2", "strangerinmyownskin take 3" and "stranger in my own skin take 4". The song was later introduced as a potential track for Babyshambles' third album during a secret show at the Proud Gallery, Camden, on November 5, 2009.
