Pulp have rewarded fans who were already lucky enough to attend their homecoming show in Sheffield earlier this month, with a Christmas card containing a download code for their new track, ‘After You’.
Originally an unreleased demo from their last album, 2001’s ‘We Love Life’, the track has been re-recorded and reworked under the watchful eye of former LCD frontman (and DIY cover star), James Murphy, while both were onboard the S.S. Coachella earlier this month. The cruise was Pulp’s last scheduled appearance, with Jarvis Cocker having told Q magazine that; “We haven’t got anything planned after the New Year… we’ll just be cruising off into the sunset. Seems poetic.”
