The Streets have shared a new EP called Brexit At Tiffany’s.

Mike Skinner, who heads up the project, has self-directed and produced video for the title track that positions him in various spots across London.

Speaking about the jazz-inflected title track, Skinner said: “‘Brexit at Tiffany’s’ is a song about how the end of a relationship can be as messy as leaving Europe! ‘We don’t belong to each other: he’s an independent, and so am I.’ Add into that a lot of blue and green and the whole thing feels like nostalgia before it’s happened. No one’s hair was set on fire during all of the recording and video.”

The Streets‘ new EP also features ‘3 Minutes to Midnight’, a bass heavy number featuring grime star Manga Saint Hilare, and ‘Test of Time’.

In January The Streets kicked off 2022 with a new track, ‘Wrong Answers Only‘, which heard Skinner joined by rapper Master Peace for a dancefloor-ready tune.

It followed The Streets’ 2021 single ‘Who’s Got The Bag (21st June)’ and a remix of Greentea Peng’s ‘Free My People’ featuring Simmy and Kid Cruise.

Master Peace said of that collaboration: “Working with Mike brought out a new avenue of my lyricism that I haven’t previously explored. He taught me a lot and I feel like that’s reflected in my verse, it touches on elements of fun, realisation of friendships and enemies and the aftermath of how you feel about those scenarios”.

The Streets were supposed to tour the UK in January and February of this year, however, last December Skinner announced that the tour was canceled.

In an Instagram post, he wrote: “It is with a very heavy heart that I have to say that we have decided to cancel all live performances for 2022. It is not fair to keep taking your money for tickets knowing that with 1 case of COVID, the whole thing has to stop. I’m really sorry to disappoint you. This has been the worst week of the worst year of my life.”

The Streets’ most recent full-length release, the mixtape None Of Us Are Getting Out Of This Life Alive, was released in July 2020.
