The Streets Unveil Brand New Single ‘Too Much Yayo’
18 Aug 2023
Having announced their brand new album ‘The Darker The Shadow The Brighter The Light’ set for release on the 20th October, The Streets have today unveiled their opening track of the project, ‘Too Much Yayo’.
Taking the form of a creative love letter to club culture and the ‘fallout that follows nocturnal weekends spent under shuttering strobe lights and towering sound systems’, ‘Too Much Yayo’ continues to depict the same relatable subject matters that lifted the pioneering group to the very top back in the day.
Quote from Mike on the track here – “Too Much Yayo” is the first song on the album and it really is the focus of the first key scene in my film. The film is set in nightclubs, places i’ve spent many nights over the past few years DJing and performing. Obviously , clubs , music and drugs all go hand in hand – and the song really is about setting the scene before the story starts to unfold – we’ve all been in clubs like this and either been the liability or seen the liability. This is one of the beats that really reacted when I was playing it out in DJ sets before it became a song. That’s how I tested out things for this album – it really helps you understand what people react to and feel “
With the new project also being accompanied by a feature film, Mike Skinner continues to examine life nuances through his trademark ‘The Streets’ lens – and the multi-talented creative will undoubtedly create more noise in the scene with new project and feature film respectively.
