Mike Skinner‘s UK rap project The Streets has returned in a major way, enlisting Kevin Parker of Tame Impala fame for the first single from the collective’s upcoming mixtape. The track is titled “Call My Phone Thinking I’m Doing Nothing Better” from the full-length None of Us Are Getting Out of This Life Alive, set to release July 10 via Island.

After a near-decade hiatus, The Streets returned to the music world in 2018 to tour, followed by a handful of sporadic releases since. The group’s last major release was 2011’s Computers and Blues, which makes this Tame Impala feature all the more special.

The video opens up with an early 2000’s brick of a burner phone reading “Social Distancing” across the display. The visual then follows Mike Skinner through remote locations, traveling up a ski lift, wandering on a beach and dialing in with friends across the world. That’s contrasted by scenes of Kevin Parker sequestered in his Los Angeles home, soaking up the sun. Parker recently released a surprise remix album, The Slow Rush In An Imaginary Place, meant to create an immersive experience for those experiencing social isolation at home.

Watch the quick three minute music video above and stream the track below. In more music updates, Drake chatted with Diddy about how quarantine has inspired his new album.
