And Jarvis Cocker will direct the video for 'Bad Cover Version'...

Pulp have announced that their next single will be ‘BAD COVER VERSION’, with a provisional release date of March 11.

The track, the second from last year’s ‘We Love Life’, was voted for as new single by fans on the official Pulp website pulponline.com. A posting on the site says one of the B-sides may be ‘Happy New Year Baby’, a brand new track frontman Jarvis Cocker has written with Pulp guitarist and rising star in his own right Richard Hawley. Other new songs ‘Yesterday’ and ‘Forever In My Dreams’, from Pulp‘s most recent studio demos, are also being considered for inclusion on the single.

Cocker will direct the video for ‘Bad Cover Version’, though details of its contents haven’t been released.
