The announcements are accompanied with new single ‘Every Day Gives’.
Mike Skinner returns as The Streets with the news that a new album The Darker The Shadow The Brighter The Light will be accompanied by a self-directed film of the same name. Skinner is sharing his directorial debut on the big screen with a tour of Everyman cinemas across the UK.
Talking about how the two pieces of work came together, Skinner says “The way the album was written was very much with the film in mind. The songs weave around the scenes and the dialogue to give a bigger picture of what’s going on – sometimes really acting as the narrator.” Layering his music over the film will provide a powerful cinematic experience.
The record will be released on October 13th with Hak Baker, Joy Anonymous and Master Peace providing support for the live dates. Many dates are already sold out for the highly anticipated run of shows.
