The Streets' next - and final - album has not leaked online, despite a compilation called 'Computers And Blues' appearing online amid claims it was the new record.

This morning (March 4) fans started sharing the 14-song file batch of Mike Skinner songs, believing it to be the follow-up to 2008's 'Everything Is Borrowed'.

However despite the speculation, the tracks contained in fact prove to be a collection of the "works in progress" that Skinner posted online last year via Twitter while he was recording the album.

Songs on the 14-track collection including 'I Love My Phone' and 'He's Behind You, He's Got Swine Flu' had previously been linked to on Skinner's official Twitter page, Twitter.com/SkinnerMike.

'Computers And Blues' is set for release later this year.
