Mike Skinner‘s The Streets project has returned after a nine-year hiatus with their latest record, None of Us Are Getting Out of This Life Alive. The album/mixtape/return-to-form is packed with notable features, as Skinner announced the record with the upbeat and unapologetic “Call My Phone Thinking I’m Doing Nothing Better” featuring Kevin Parker, frequently known as Tame Impala. The music video paid tribute to the new normal of the coronavirus quarantines with missed connections abound.

It’s not like Skinner hasn’t kept busy in the near-decade since The Streets’ Computers and Blues. He toured globally as a DJ, hopped on remixes and remained relevant in his own right, but his return here showcases just how much he’s grown in that timeframe. A strong stream of singles followed the Kevin Parker feature aided by some creative on-the-run music videos. “Falling Down” was backed by a piano ballad infused with electronica and punchy drums for a memorable sonic contradiction.

“I Wish You Loved You As Much As You Love Him” featured UK musicians Donae’o and Greentea Peng. Skinner described the track as “a summer club song” in a recent interview with Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1. The warped green-screen video showed Skinner hanging in and around his apartment in a display of solidarity with the rest of the world. As for “Where the F*ck Did April Go”, the musician looked for an escape and some answers during COVID-19 saying, “None of us know quite how to cope with it all. I just wrote a tune the same way other people might talk to a therapist!”

The Streets have also announced an upcoming series of shows in the UK titled Live From The Drive-In. They’re set to perform at 12 locations across the the country from July to August, where audiences will be able to experience the show from their own vehicle.
