Jarvis Cocker, erstwhile frontman of Britpop heroes Pulp, has released new music for the first time in seven years. The first song comes in the form of “Theme From Likely Stories”, a new TV series based on the stories of Neil Gaiman.

“Four grubby tales set in all night cafes, low rent drinking dens and doctor’s surgeries. I didn’t have to leave my comfort zone for this assignment,” Cocker says of the song, an eerie, spoken-word dirge, nonetheless bristling with his trademark charisma.

The song will also appear on an EP, out on June 3 via Rough Trade, including three other songs written for the series. Stream or buy it here.
