British rocker Jarvis Cocker walked away from his popular U.K. radio show to concentrate on reviving his music career. The Pulp frontman has spent three years hosting Jarvis Cocker's Sunday Service on Britain's BBC 6 Music, but recently announced plans to take a year-long break from the job. He has now revealed he will use his time off to get back to writing music. Cocker tells Theguardian.com, "This year I'm taking a break from the radio show to find out if I've got any interesting songs left to write or whether I've written them all." The singer adds of his radio career, "Making music can be quite lonely. The great thing about the radio show is that it's sociable. You can get people to respond straight away. You have office parties. It's difficult to have an office party when you're writing songs on your own."
