Last night (May 30), Cocker and co. announced that they would perform a virtual gig with green screen technology.
“As you know JARV IS… should have been on tour now,” Cocker said on Instagram. “We have been experimenting with Green Screen Technology to try & beam ourselves into your living rooms. Tune into our channel on Yo*Tube at 9pm BST this evening to see how we got on.”
The result is an eight-minute new version of ‘House Music All Night Long’, featuring Chilly Gonzalez and Naala, and the green screen put to great use. Watch it below.
JARV IS… were due to release their debut album ‘Beyond The Pale’ on May 1 via Rough Trade, however, due to the coronavirus it will now arrive on July 17, ahead of their rescheduled UK tour dates taking place in November.
After going on a nine-year hiatus in 2002, the Brtipop legends played a slew of shows at the turn of the decade, including a now legendary surprise set at Glastonbury 2011 and a headline slot at Reading & Leeds that year. They haven’t performed together since December 2012 when they played a homecoming gig in Sheffield and two shows aboard the SS Coachella Cruise.
