Jarvis Cocker has spoken about Pulp’s future plans and says that he and his bandmates haven’t ruled out recording new material.
The band reunited in late 2010 and played a number of festivals and well-received gigs last summer, but have not as yet indicated if they will be writing or recording any new material.
Speaking in an interview which you can read in the new issue of NME, the singer refused to be definitely drawn either way on the prospect of new material, but also ruled out the band breaking up once again.
Asked about the prospect of new material, he said: “I don’t know about that. I mean, I’ve enjoyed doing these shows because the idea was, could we manage to do it again, to make it feel like it was worth doing and to make it sound right? And I think we managed to do that.” He added:
I suppose once you’ve done that, the next thing is; would you make some new music? I’ve enjoyed the fact that we haven’t been doing any new stuff, because I feel that’s kept it quite simple. It’s hard one. We haven’t been in the studio or anything. I don’t know what will happen in the future.
