Jarvis Cocker has joined forces with Tony Christie on his forthcoming star-studded album.

The former Pulp singer has reworked the theme from the Michael Caine 1971 movie Get Carter for the follow up to the singer's 2008 album 'Made In Sheffield'.

Entitled 'Now Is The Time', which is due for release on Acid Jazz in 2011, the record also features guest collaborations with Roisin Murphy among others.

"The massive success of 'Is This The Way To Amarillo' a few years ago cemented Tony Christie's iconic status, he's put down some killer tunes," said Acid Jazz boss Eddie Piller of the singer. "The spread on the album is amazing, quite filmic but with some nods to Johnny Cash, spaghetti westerns and a classic soul sound."

Christie is also planning to line up a 40-date tour early next year.
