The former Pulp moves onto Morrissey's turf

Jarvis Cocker has spoken about his interest in writing Britain’s entry into the Eurovision Song Contest.

The news comes after recent reports that Morrissey was asked if he was interested in writing an entry.

Cocker said: “I’m not going to compete with Mozzer if he’s going to do it. I’m sure he’ll write something good.

He told BBC Five Live: “The door is always open if they want to ask me. I’ve always wanted to write one for them. Maybe I’ll do it next year.”

As previously reported, Morrissey was apparently asked about penning a song for this year’s competition after he expressed an interest while playing a gig last year.

Meanwhile, Cocker has been nominated for British Male Solo Artist at this year’s BRIT Awards. You can see the full nominations list on NME.COM now.
