Not as suprising a collaboration as Keys/White as The Streets supported Muse for one of their Wembley Stadium gigs last year and is meant to be chummy with the group; but an interesting merging of genre’s regardless. I’m not sure it entirely works, it was just meant to be a muck around ‘jam’ according to Muse and it shows in the production and Muse simply provide the music which denies us the opporunity to hear Matt’s overblown falsetto versus Mike’s ordinary blokish talking. The song still has a nice novelty factor to it though.
“The MP3 floating around on the message boards at the moment is a track we recorded with Mike Skinner a few months ago. The track was the result of a late night jam session and something we did for a bit of a laugh featuring a blues riff we have been playing live recently upon which Skinner recorded some vocals. It is not intended to be a serious release so we are happy for it to be leaked around unofficially. Hope you enjoy, Cheers. Matt, Dom & Chris.”
The Streets have a new album coming out on the 15th of September ‘Everything Is Borrowed’ and what I presume will be the lead single has a rather introspective video to accompany it.
