Former The Streets frontman Mike Skinner and ex-The Music singer Rob Harvey have confirmed details of their debut album for their new project The DOT.

The 11 track LP entitled 'And That' will be released on October 22. The album features collaborations with Claire Maguire ('You Never Asked') and Danny Brown on opener 'And A Hero'.

Harvey recently told NME that the pair had over 60 songs for the project which they have since whittled down. "We'd both in bands for 10 years and obviously Mike was really successful with what he did and I had a little bit of success with The Music boys but we were just bored of doing the same thing," he said "So we just wanted to do something different [after our bands had split]."

The pair have already posted up a series of tracks on their official website Thedot.net, with Harvey taking the lead vocals on the majority of the songs.

They will now also embark on a UK tour in October. To check the availability of The DOT tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
