James Murphy Collaborates on Pulp's New Version of "After You"

British rockers Pulp have finished their reunion tour and claim there’s no new music on the horizon; however, they have given fans something just as good: a rerecorded version of the demo “After You.”

Attendees at the band’s recent show in Sheffield, U.K. were given Christmas cards containing a download code for a “little present” to be opened on Christmas day. That present turned out to be a sort-of-new song from the We Love Life-era, which was first demoed in 2000 but never finished. LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy came aboard to collaborate on the tune and the band recorded a new version of it in November. Murphy then put the finishing touches on the song in London and in between sets on the Coachella cruise.

In an interview with Q magazine, Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker said this may be it. “We haven’t got anything planned after the New Year… we’ll just be cruising off into the sunset. Seems poetic. Not wishing to make a big deal, but we’ve played for a while and it’s been really good, but you can’t keep doing that forever.”

Check out the new song below.
