Pulp have announced their contribution to Record Store Day 2013 will be a vinyl release of a Soulwax remix of their 2012 release, 'After You'.

The band shared a photo of the 12" vinyl single sleeve, which will be made available on 20 April 2013 alongside releases by many other major artists. The annual event aims to boost record sales through local outlets. David Bowie and Paul McCartney are also among the big names recently confirmed to be contributing releases to the 2013 Record Store Day.

Bowie is set to release 7" vinyl copies of his two recent singles, 'The Stars (Are Out Tonight)' and 'Where Are We Now?'. Both will be limited to 1,000 copies, as well as pressing of his four-track EP Bowie 1965!. 7" picture discs of Drive-In Saturday will also be available, and have 2,000 copies.

Paul McCartney is also participating, and will be releasing a live version of his 1976 radio promo single 'Maybe I'm Amazed' on 12" vinyl.
