The Streets have shared new single ‘Too Much Yayo’.
Out now, the single is a key moment on incoming album ‘The Darker The Shadow The Brighter The Light’. Slated to be released on October 20th, the release is actually a twin project – a full scale film will also be released.
A full tour in October follows, with support from Hak Baker, Joy Anonymous, and more. Tickets are on sale now.
Out now, ‘Too Much Yayo’ is a toast to club culture, focussing on the inspirational aspects of life after dark. The beat has been finessed in Mike Skinner’s DJ sets, with the Streets chief tinkering with the production until it fully pops.
‘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…
Tune in now.
