The band have given away a new studio recording of 'After You' as a Christmas present for fans
Pulp have unveiled a new track produced by James Murphy – scroll right down and click ‘play’ to listen to it.
Titled ‘After You’, the track was first demoed by the band during the sessions for their 2001 album ‘We Love Life’, but this version is a new studio recording. According to Pitchfork, the band recorded it this November (2012) before finishing it off with 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.
Pulp played their most recent shows aboard the Coachella Cruise of the Caribbean, which ran from December 16 to December 23 and also featured sets from James Murphy. At present, Jarvis Cocker and co have no further reunion dates lined up for 2013.
