Mike Skinner has suggested that heâll release two more albums as The Streets before calling it a day. In a blog on his MySpace page, the singer writes that heâs completed his fourth studio set, Everything is Borrowed, and is now planning a âdark and futuristicâ finale thatâs been inspired by a visit to a synthesizer exhibition.
Skinner says that Everything Is Borrowed is a âpeaceful coming to terms albumâ. This follows the âweird guilt-ridden indulgenceâ that was The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living, The Streetsâ third LP.
Of course, the end of The Streets wonât necessarily mean the end of Mike Skinner â chances are heâll continue to make music under some other moniker.
Everything Is Borrowed should be released later this year.
