THE Streets have released another single from their upcoming mixtape, featuring Donae’o and Greentea Peng, titled ‘I Wish You Loved You As Much As You Loved Him’.
A homage to The Streets beginnings, the track is at home in a UK garage or club setting with smooth synth piano sounds weaving over the top of filthy bass and intense percussion. Speaking on the tune, Skinner said “This is a summer club song. Knowing that Donae’o is the king of UK Funky Music – match made in heaven. Greentea Peng was the perfect foil for this, her melodies are unique and she’s wicker. I’ve spent the last 3 weeks working on the video for this one. It better be good.”
The track premiered last night as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on Radio 1, a quick follow up to ‘Call My Phone Thinking I’m Doing Nothing Better’, which was released back in April in collaboration with Tame Impala.
One of the defining sounds and voices of British culture in the 21st century, all eyes are poised on the first full-length record from Mike Skinner and The Streets in over 9 years. The upcoming mixtape, ‘None Of Us Are Getting Out Of This Life Alive’, sees the rap and garage icons collaborating with a plethora of eclectic musicians. Recorded between work on an accompanying film about The Streets and TONGA parties, a rap and grime club headed by Skinner, this album includes collaborations with Grammy nominees Tame Impala, punk outfit IDLES, teenage rap wünderkid Jimothy Lacoste and more.
‘None Of Us Are Getting Out Of This Alive’ will be released on July 10th and is available for pre-order NOW.
