Jarvis Cocker has announced his first new release since 2009 and it’s thanks in part to Neil Gaiman. The Pulp frontman wrote music for Neil Gaiman’s Likely Stories, a four-part TV series based on the short stories of the British author known for Coraline and the comic book series The Sandman.

Cocker explained his involvement with the project like this: “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.”

He also revealed the release of a four-song EP featuring songs from the series both digitally on May 27 and as a vinyl 7″ on June 3 via Rough Trade.

Cocker worked on the music for Likely Stories with a team that included Alasdair Mally (percussionist for Scott Walker) and Martin Slattery of the Hours. Portishead‘s Adrian Utley also contributed synths to the theme song, which is streaming right here.
