The Streets Share New Single ‘Each Day Gives’: Listen
The Streets have shared Each Day Gives, the third instalment from the highly anticipated forthcoming album and feature film, The Darker The Shadow The Brighter The Light, released 13 October. Listen below.
Producer, vocalist and DJ Mike Skinner is currently touring UK Everyman Cinemas with the self-directed film, which is his debut feature. Tickets for the full tour are now available to purchase online along with a pre-order of the album.
“The way the album was written was very much with the film in mind,” said Skinner. “The songs weave around the scenes and the dialogue to give a bigger picture of what’s going on – sometimes really acting as the narrator. Each Day Gives comes as the main characters are facing a dilemma and working out what to do after their plans go awry – the song talks about overcoming little (and big) adversities and waking up each morning and treating it as a fresh start – until the next dilemma kicks in!”
The music of The Darker The Shadow The Brighter The Light is inextricably linked to the dancefloor, with tidal waves of bass, garage and house laced in, an experience akin to stumbling through different rooms of the club. Skinner, as always, is the keen eye tying his disparate world together, shining with his customary lyrical wizardry and eclectic production. The record is a classic Streets album – with all songs written by Skinner but featuring vocal contributions from longtime collaborators Kevin Mark Trail and Robert Harvey, as well as a track featuring Teef.
The Darker The Shadow, The Brighter The Light film is a tripped out noir murder mystery based in Londons’ clubland. Skinner has written, directed, shot, edited, scored, funded, and even created his own special effects on the film, shooting at a number of different locations in 2022 across the UK. The songs on the album soundtrack the film and also play the role of narrator of the film at times – and whilst neither the album or film exist without each other – both can be enjoyed separately.
