Jarvis Cocker is trying hard to make 2011 his year, and he’s well on his way to achieving his goal. As if the resurrection of Pulp weren’t enough (we’ll see where that leads, as no doubt many of us are thinking there’ll be a new album soon enough), now we get word that Jarvis is making his debut as a published writer. Faber Publishing will put out “Mother, Brother, Lover: Selected Lyrics”, a book that, as its title indicates, collects his poetic reflections embodied as pop anthems. “It’s not like you really want to write words, it’s just that you’re the singer so [...] you’ve got to write some words. And that’s how it happened to me,” said Cocker about his accidental initiation into the art of writing, in an interview with the director of the publishing house (watch the video below). In the book, the title of which refers to the three most recurring words in his lyrical lexicon, Cocker confesses that the first words he wrote were “Shakespeare Rock”. With that title it’s highly likely we’ll find an endless amount of anecdotal trivia there that will be appreciated by the Pulp fans.
