Back in 2002, the buzz surrounding Mike Skinner and his project The Streets was inescapable.

The English rapper/producer’s debut studio album, Original Pirate Material, was a singular work with irreverent beats, unexpectedly fresh arrangements and a style all its own, and it put Skinner on the map.

Skinner has been mostly quiet in recent years, but on July 10 a new The Streets release will be unveiled when None Of Us Are Getting Out Of This Life Alive is released. Officially a “mixtape” rather than an album, this will be the first official release from The Streets since 2011.

Another pre-release track is “I Wish You Loved You As Much As You Love Him,” featuring Greentea Peng. Its music video is visually stirring, and includes a few references to Black Live Matter and social protests going on around the world:

A third single, “Falling Down,” a collaboration with Hak Baker, was premiered on Tuesday:

Pre-order bundles for the new Streets mixtape are available now.

The Streets will also take part in some drive-in concert experiences in the U.K., as announced recently.

Via a news release:

In line with this news, The Streets have also been announced as one of acts poised to perform a run of UK headline shows “Live From The Drive-In.” Mike and his band will take to the stage for a full concert production at 12 locations throughout July and August, where audiences will be able to experience the show from the safety and comfort of their designated area accessed via their vehicle. Tickets will be extremely limited, but fans will be able to gain pre-sale access when they pre-order the mixtape before 12pm, June 23rd. More info here.
