Pulp : After You

Reunited Britpop heroes Pulp presented their fans with a pretty special Christmas gift this year: those that attended their recent homecoming show in Sheffield were given a card with a link (that was activated at midnight on Christmas Eve) to download a new song, “After You”, which you can hear below. Written around the time of their last studio album (2001’s We Love Life) , the track previously existed only in demo form until the band recorded this new version this past November; as if this wasn’t exciting enough news already, the song was produced by former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy (whose Shut Up And Play The Hits DVD took up the best part of my Boxing Day), and whilst there is no word yet on whether the reunion will yield any more new material, the way the DFA disco grooves gel perfectly with Cocker and co.’s dark, deviant pop make a full-length Murphy-assisted Pulp comeback album a mouth-watering prospect.

About foamhands

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
