The Sheffield indie legends play 'Common People' and rarity 'Like A Friend'

Pulp appear on US talk show 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' – video
Pulp performed two songs on US talk show Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night (April 9).

Scroll down to watch the band's performances, which comes ahead of their US tour dates and appearance at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this weekend (April 13-15) and next (April 20-22).

The band played a typically energetic version of 'Common People' as well as rarity 'Like A Friend', which was featured on the soundtrack to the 1998 film Great Expectations, which starred Gwyneth Paltrow.

Jarvis Cocker recently revealed that he has been working on ideas for new Pulp songs. Speaking to Shortlist, the frontman admitted that although he wasn't sure what would happen with the new material, he had still been thinking about the possibility of a fresh batch of tracks.

Asked if there were any new Pulp songs in the pipeline, he answered: "It took us long enough to relearn the old songs, so we'll have to see about that. But I've got ideas. I keep my little notebook, I've always got that with me. Hopefully there's more stuff than nonsense in there."

Last month (March 31), Pulp played their first live show of 2012 at London's Royal Albert Hall as part of this year's run of Teenage Cancer Trust gigs. In February of this year, Pulp picked up this year's Teenage Cancer Trust Outstanding Contribution To Music gong at the NME Awards.
