Jarvis Cocker has released “Must I Evolve?,” his first song under the Jarv Is… project.
The serpentine track weaves its way through six minutes of Cocker’s otherworldly lyrics, tracking human evolution from the big bang until the present day. “We’re proud of ourselves, we’re two single cells / Now it gets exciting, because cells start dividing / A new organism, now we can go swimming / In the primordial soup,” he sings.
Jarv Is… is fronted by Jarvis Cocker, and features Serafina Steer, Emma Smith, Andrew McKinney, Jason Buckle and Adam Betts. Check out “Must I Evolve?” below:
