Pulp and 2manyDJs announce Record Store Day release party
Both acts will DJ at The Shacklewell Arms in London on Saturday (April 20)
There will be DJ sets from both acts at the venue as they celebrate the Record Store Day release of new Pulp single 'After You'. The track was first released to fans in December and was produced by LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy. The track will be available on vinyl for the first time on Record Store Day and comes backed with a Soulwax remix, which you can stream below now.
For more information about tickets, see The Shacklewell Arms website.
'After You' was first demoed by the band during the sessions for their 2001 album 'We Love Life', but the new version is a fresh version recorded in November 2012 before finishing it off with former LCD Soundsystem frontman Murphy in December.
On December 8 (2012), Pulp played a triumphant homecoming show at Sheffield's Motorpoint Arena. Fans attending the bash were handed a Christmas card containing the following message: "We got you a little present but you can't open it til Xmas day, OK? If you enter this code into a computer anytime after midnight on Xmas Eve you will get a nice surprise - but no peeking before then! That would be naughty."
As promised, the link was activated at 00.01am on December 25, enabling fans who attended the show to download the new version of 'After You', which runs over a minute longer than the previously leaked demo. Jarvis Cocker, meanwhile, has spoken about Pulp's future plans – and says that he and his bandmates haven't ruled out recording more new material.
