Check out 'Burn Bridges' and 'Sometimes I Hate My Enemies More Than My Friends'


Mike Skinner has delivered a festive surprise to fans by releasing a new single as The Streets.

Earlier this year, fans were delighted when The Streets announced their return with an upcoming UK greatest hits tour. Many believed that Skinner and co would just be performing old material, but now it seems that something new is in the pipeline. ‘Burn Bridges’ and ‘Sometimes I Hate My Friends More Than My Enemies’ are available on iTunes here.

‘Burn Bridges’ leans on Skinner’s more esoteric side, as he delivers a somber and bitter verse over a slow and lamentful beat. The b-side ‘Sometimes I Hate My Friends More Than My Enemies’ is just as dark in tone but in the more upbeat fame that found The Streets fame.

‘The Darker The Shadow The Brighter The Light’ tour is named after a recent track from Skinner.

The Streets last toured in 2011 in support of their fifth album ‘Computers and Blues’. They will now reunite for live dates next April and will perform songs from their classic albums ‘Original Pirate Material’ and ‘A Grand Don’t Come For Free’, plus more.

“I’ve missed tour buses very much,” said Skinner of his decision to return earlier this year. “Which is the least of the reasons why I have decided to tour The Streets again. The other thing I’ve missed is trying to think up what I’m going to say in the gap between the songs. When you DJ they tell you that you don’t need a tour bus and you don’t need to think up things to say between the songs. But seriously, it’s been long enough.

“With my Tonga parties, the new rap and grime MC’s I have been producing and the DJing, I have been living with music since making The Streets for nearly as long as I made The Streets. I’m not the guy smoking in the car anymore though, I have become the guy in the club, so I hope I will be excused for putting on after parties in nightclubs after every show”.
