Jarvis Cocker announces UK tour: “most of the songs are new”

Jarvis @ Music Hall of Williamsburg, 2009 (more by Chris La Putt)

Jarvis Cocker‘s announcement he was teasing came this morning and…it’s not a record (yet), it’s not a memoir, it’s a UK tour. He announced via his Instagram, with another “Jarv Is…” video but this time giving some clues before dropping the tour dates:

entirely implausible
a way of looking at the world
an acronym
stands for something
louder than you might expect
two women and three men
up close and personal
a rave in a cave
a group
the next best thing
electric music
a work in progress
ancient and modern at the same time
a live experience with no barriers
…and will always be
It’s probably best if you come along and see for yourself.

A press release says “most of the songs are new but some will be familiar,” which sounds like a new album could be sooner than later, and it will indeed be “two women and three men” with Jarvis’ band including Serafina Steer (who Jarvis has produced) on harp and keyboards, Emma Smith on violin, Andrew McKinney on bass, and Adam Betts (Three Trapped Tigers) on drums. As for “rave in a cave clue,” the last two shows of the tour happen at Peak Cavern in Castleton which is near Jarvis’ hometown of Sheffield.

Jarvis Cocker’s last proper solo album was 2009’s Further Complications. All dates are listed below.

Now it can be told…
