The Streets to quit after next album
Tuesday 12 August 2008
Mike Skinner has said that The Streets will make one final album after their next release, but he might come back for more when he was "40 and broke".
The fourth Streets album, Everything Is Borrowed, is due out next month. The rapper/producer told NME that the next one after that would be the last.
He said: "I did a five-album deal and I don't think it would be right to be making Streets albums after that. I always envisaged them as a box-set and I've got a vision for each of the albums.
He added: "The next one will bring it back to the start in a way. It will be a lot more futuristic in terms of production but a lot more train-of-thought. Maybe when I'm 40 and broke I might come back, but that all feels a bit pants."
