JARV IS… unveil new track ‘Save The Whale’

It’s the latest lifted from upcoming album ‘Beyond The Pale’.

With their forthcoming album ‘Beyond The Pale’ set to land on 17th July via Rough Trade Records, JARV IS… are unveiling new track ‘Save The Whale’, accompanied by a video made by Jarvis Cocker at his home while in lockdown.

“The title popped into my head as I was leaving the cinema after having seen Nick Broomfield’s ‘Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love’ documentary,” Jarvis says of the new track. “The ‘Smooth World, Wrinkly World’ section came from a childhood memory of being ill: I would hear the murmuring of a large crowd accompanied by a visual image of a line-drawing (rather like a Patrick Caulfield painting, I’ve since realised) in which all the objects switched rapidly between being smooth & bulbous & then thin & wrinkly. It used to absolutely terrify me. Weirdly enough, Jason (our electronics wizard) said he had a similar childhood experience except he used to see a teapot surrounded by psychedelic outlines of itself. Emma (our violinist & backing vocalist) found herself singing ‘Smooth World, Wrinkly World’ as a lullaby to her 18 month-old daughter the other night. Pass it on.”
