Jarvis Cocker, not to be outdone by fellow Brit Morrissey, has said he would like to write a song for Europe. Following the news that the BBC have been in talks with the former Smiths frontman, plus other high profile British acts, to provide tracks for the Eurovision Song Contest, Cocker has said that he too would like to help raise the standard.
He told BBC Five Live, “I’m not going to compete with Mozzer if he’s going to do it. I’m sure he’ll write something good. The door is always open if they want to ask me. I’ve always wanted to write one for them. Maybe I’ll do it next year.”
