"For Lovers" is the debut single by Wolfman featuring Pete Doherty. The single reached No. 7 in the UK singles chart.[1] Rumours that the pair received relatively little money, having already sold the publishing rights for a small amount in a pub[2] are unfounded as in reality the rights were shared amongst the musicians who worked mostly without pay on the recording.

In 2005 the song was nominated for an Ivor Novello Award for songwriting.[3]
