Pulp's Ten Year Hiatus Properly Over With New Track 'After You'

Pulp is back, and not back like they were last year, doing a bit of touring, but properly back with new music and everything. Their latest track - the first new one in ten years - is called After You. 

Well, 'new' is a bit rich given that it was first written and recorded back in 2001, but was rejected from their 'We Love Life' album, according to the Metro, however they've brought it back from the dead and what wasn't quite right then, is right now having been rerecorded. Either that or they're out of good ideas but still want to sell records again. 

It was released on Christmas day and fans that had been to see them in Sheffield earlier in the month were given codes to access on the internet. "We got you a little present but you can't open it til Xmas Day, OK?" the cards said, with a further message on the website: "No peeking before then! That would be naughty."

On an equally exciting note LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy produced the track. Fans of him and the band have been mourning their loss after breaking up last year, but with a little injection of Murphy into this track and rumours surrounding his collaboration with other artists, hopefully that will appease them a little.

On a slightly less joyous note, while Pulp fans may be hoping for a new album, Jarvis Cocker - lead vocalist of the band - told Q that they had no more plans for shows in 2013, adding: "Not wishing to make a big deal, but we've played for a while and it's been really good - but you can't keep doing that forever. Will you see Pulp again? Who knows."
