Streets announce date for album
Mike Skinner of The Streets
Skinner's debut album was released in 2002

The Streets have completed their fourth album, Everything is Borrowed, and set its release date for 15 September.

A free download of the song The Escapist, which is from the album is available online now.

Mike Skinner, whose hits include Fit But You Know It and Dry Your Eyes, said the video for the track was "totally different" from any other he has made.

"It was something real that we just filmed rather than trying to create something real looking," he said.

"I feel like it's more than a video in that sense."

The title track of the album will be released as a single on 29 September and The Streets will kick off their UK tour in October starting in Glasgow.

It was six years ago when The Streets first album, Original Pirate Material, was released.

The record, which established Skinner in the music industry, went on to be nominated for the Mercury Prize.

His follow up, A Grand Don't Come For Free, went to number one in 2005 and later that year he won best male solo artist at the Brit Awards.

Skinner's last album The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living was released two years ago.
