Mike Skinner‘s The Streets took nearly a decade-long hiatus but came back in full force early last month with the 12-track effort None of Us Are Getting Out of This Life Alive. Skinner packaged the project with ominous titles, post-apocalyptic outlooks and an ongoing search for human connection. Today The Streets tap Bristol punk band IDLES for the title track’s new music video.

The Rollo Jackson-directed visual finds both Skinner and IDLES frontman Joe Talbot still searching, embarking on a journey with no particular destination in mind. “I don’t like my country, it’s more of an addiction/The way girls fixate and pore over lip gloss,” Skinner raps. “I’m hard to love, I make idiot jokes/But those the hardest to love are those that need it the most.”

Skinner announced this new record with “Call My Phone Thinking I’m Doing Nothing Better” featuring Kevin Parker, frequently known as Tame Impala. The video was filmed just weeks into the coronavirus quarantines and the duo was already hiding out in remote locations like a secluded mountaintop cabin or a shaded Los Angeles mansion.

“I Wish You Loved You As Much As You Love Him” featured UK musicians Donae’o and Greentea Peng. On “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!”

Today, The Streets will be playing an exclusive club performance set to be broadcasted to the world from EartH Hackney. You can purchase tickets here. Watch Mike Skinner’s latest visual above and stream his new project below.
