Skinner confirms he'll ditch his moniker after next album

Mike Skinner has reiterated that the album that follows his next effort, ‘Everything Is Borrowed’, will be his last as ‘The Streets‘, saying he is “fucking sick” of the name and its implications.

He told The Guardian that he wanted to become a more eclectic artist and leave The Streets as a finite body of work.

“All I’ve been thinking about for the last two years is water, beaches and trees,” he said, referring to the subject matter of ‘Everything Is Borrowed’, The Streets’ fourth album, out on September 15.

He added: “I’m just fucking sick of it, you know?”

He continued: “[I want to be liberated] from that word ‘The Streets‘ and all that I feel that The Streets should be.”
