They've also announced that their Island Record tracks are making their ways to streaming platforms
Before storming the stage at St. Anne's Park in Dublin with a "zero-filler set" for their This Is What We Do For An Encore tour, Pulp have had a few announcements. Not only are their songs from their Island Records period hitting streaming services, but they're producing their very owns special blend of tea and are promoting a jewellery line highlighting fans' favourite lyrics.
First and foremost, over Twitter Pulp asked an eyecatching question: "Does this turn you on?"
Sharing that a series of tracks from their time at Island Records were about to hit streaming platforms, they continued on to affirm that the Lipgloss EP was already available. It's even supposed to get a remastered video soon.
"A new EP will be added each week," the tweet concluded.
As for their other announcements, the tea line comes through a collaboration with tea company Dragonfly Tea. Each bag comes with a lyric from one of Pulp's songs inscribed on the tag, giving the perfect tip "to help you plan your day.
It was announced last week via Jarvis Branson Cocker's Instagram, where he emphatically remarked: "Monday mornings can be hard."
"This could help: Pulp Monday Morning Tea! In collaboration with @dragonflyteauk (who produced the JARV IS... 'Peppermint Jungle' tea) we have come up with the perfect Black Tea to get you up & running on Monday, or any other day of the week."

That's not all - Cocker continued on to note that Dragonfly Tea was also releasing a mini-tea caddy to "take sachets of tea with you" wherever one might need it.
"Tea's up," the Pulp frontman finished. He then added the tags #putthekettleon, #illdrinktothat, and #whyliveintheworldwhenyoucanliveinyourhead.
An additional photo in the post included a close-up of one of the tea bag's tags, aptly telling people to "Dance, and drink, and screw / Because there's nothing else to do."
The tea, however, isn't Pulp's only new product. In another post from last Wednesday, Cocker calls fans attention by exclaiming "Hey you - you in the Jesus sandals! Yes - you!"
"What have you got to say for yourself? Nothing? Well - we can help...... In conjunction with those lovely people at @tattydevine we have produced a range of jewellery that has a great deal to say for itself: because it quotes a selection of Pulp lyrics."
"You will no longer have to open your mouth to make a statement," Cocker assures. "We will do it for you. It's our pleasure."

At the moment, Pulp continues to rock across UK stages on tour, returning to the on-stage spotlight for the first time in over a decade. They're set to play at the Isle of Wight Festival tomorrow in Newport before making their way to London, Manchester, and Scarborough, among other performances.
