The Streets are reissuing their first two albums on vinyl

'Original Pirate Material' and 'A Grand Don’t Come for Free' being re-released as a double-LP

The Streets have announced that they will re-release their first two albums on vinyl.

The Mike Skinner-led group recently announced a UK tour and released new music.

Now it has been confirmed that 2002’s ‘Original Pirate Material’ and 2004’s ‘A Grand Don’t Come for Free’ will be repressed as a double-LP package on March 30, coming via Rhino Records.

The albums had previously been out-of-print on vinyl.

The Streets last released a full-length album in February 2011 with their fifth LP ‘Computers and Blues’.

NME‘s Leonie Cooper recently wrote of The Streets’ new tracks: “Letting grime permeate [Skinner’s] sound more than ever before, he somberly and slowly delivers his moody message over a minimal beat that wouldn’t seem out of place in the hands of Skepta.”

Mike Skinner will take The Streets on a sold-out UK and European tour later this year – check out the full touring schedule below.
