Preview: The Streets

by Adam Aiken

Mike Skinner’s show in Norwich next week is a sell-out, with the producer, vocalist and DJ heading to the city as he promotes the latest album by The Streets.

The Darker The Shadow, The Brighter The Light is accompanied by a film of the same name, which was shown across the UK until a few weeks ago.

It’s now more than 20 years since The Streets first broke through with the Mercury Prize-nominated Original Pirate Material.

Since then, the influential Skinner has won a raft of top awards as well as picking up many other nominations.

He’ll be visiting Norfolk on Monday, November 13, for a show at UEA.

The Streets called it a day in 2011, but the project got under way again in 2017, and Skinner’s shows continue to regularly sell out.

The new record is the first Streets album since 2011’s Computers And Blues.
