I hope you missed me because I def missed having this moment of geeking out every day even if my days were crammed full of quality hangs with my big brother.
ANYWAYS BACK TO OUR REGULAR SCHEDULED PROGRAMMING
Y’all The Streets are actually going to be releasing a new album next year and I’ve been so emotional ever since I heard the news. 😭😭😭
Awhile back, Streets mastermind Mike Skinner informed us in his interview with Q that we should be keeping an ear out for this new single, “Call Me In The Morning”. Last week Skinner gave us so so much to be thankful for by finally unveiling the track along with an accompanying video.
In addition to the new single, Skinner has also promised us a mixtape in 2019 in addition to playing a string of music festivals and releasing a film, which apparently was one of the main reasons he quit doing The Streets to begin with. As Skinner explained to Mr Porter in an interview back in March, “The reason I finished The Streets was to make a film, and the reason I started The Streets up again was to make a film.” The film, which has a lofty but all familiar title for true Mike Skinner stans: The Darker The Shadow, The Brighter The Light, which was the side project he used to release 19 tracks over the course of last year. At any rate, the film is allegedly, “a Streets musical, like Casablanca but not as much as La La Land” but with heady dialogue a la the days of Dawson’s Creek, according to Skinner. He also shared that the script is “very like a Streets album”.
Um. This me rn:
But really tho, 2019 is gonna be my fuckin year even if it’s just because I get to stan extra hard for one of my favorite all time artists.
Do we think he’d cross the pond and do some shows in the US of A or am I really gonna have to sell some organs to get to one of these upcoming shows? I’m prepared either way tbh.
