Determined to go out on a high note—Pulp have released their first single in ten years. ‘After you’ a new recording of a demo from the year 2000 was finalised on-board the SS Coachella. James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem was at the helm during production, breathing new life into the track which was released on Christmas day 2012. Cocker’s awkward wit and dry humor that characterise his songs is surfaced up once again in ‘After You’ a track that is sure to gain to widespread pick up.
Having reformed to play a string of successful European shows in 2011 Jarvis Cocker lead his band of merry men aboard the floating festival for what many are predicting to be a last hoorah.
Some of my formative teenage years were spent bopping along to Pulp in many an indie disco and have managed to see them play live a few times which were always enjoyed. And while we never did meet up in the year 2000 it’s good to meet the band here 13years on.
