Jarvis Cocker Shares Song About Paris Terror Attacks

Jarvis Cocker lives in Paris, and the Pulp frontman has recorded a new song responding to the recent terrorist attacks in Paris. As The Quietus points out, the song is called “Friday 13th 2015,” and Cocker recorded it with Serafina Steer, the English harpist and singer-songwriter. It’s a spoken-word piece, with Cocker speaking calmly about what he was doing on the day of the attack, about worrying for his son’s safety and going about his everyday business as a sort of statement of resistance. By the end of the song, he’s describing random people on the street and telling them that he loves them. It’s a moving piece of work, and Cocker recently debuted it on his BBC 6 Music radio show.
