Pulp: ‘We honestly haven’t talked about making a new album’

The band discuss the possibility of new material in the new issue of NME

Pulp said that they “honestly” haven’t discussed making a new album.

The band last released an album in 2001, ‘We Love Life’, which was their seventh LP, although they reunited in 2011 and 2012 for live shows.

Speaking in the new issue of NME, which is in stores and available digitally from tomorrow (June 4), Steve Mackey of the band said when asked about the possibility of a new record from the band: “I know you’re not going to believe this but we honestly haven’t talked about it.”

Candida Doyle of the group added: “We’re just not that kind of band. If you step back into that environment where you want to release records, then all these complications step up.”
The band’s upcoming movie, Pulp: A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets will receive its European premiere in Sheffield this Saturday (June 7) at the City Hall as part of Sheffield Doc Fest 2014. Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker recently shared a handwritten note with fans about screenings of the film. The documentary, which charts Pulp‘s homecoming show in Sheffield in December 2012, will also be broadcast live to cinemas across the UK.

The film documents the ‘last’ Pulp show, at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena in 2012. When asked by NME in the new interview if they would ever play live again, frontman Jarvis Cocker responded: “The thing is, the film company think if we say it’s the last concert, more people will come to see it, but we’re not so sure… we’re not sure ourselves. It could be, but it also couldn’t… Is that vague enough?”
