The Streets have returned with new single ‘Boys Will Be Boys’, ahead of their full reunion tour next month.
The latest track from the Mike Skinner band comes after the release of ‘Burn Bridges’ and ‘Sometimes I Hate My Friends More Than My Enemies’ in December last year, despite fans initially believing that there wouldn’t be any new material as part of their comeback.

The Streets last toured in 2011 in support of their fifth album ‘Computers and Blues’, but they’ll return for live dates next April and will perform songs from their classic albums ‘Original Pirate Material’ and ‘A Grand Don’t Come For Free’, plus more.
“I’ve missed tour buses very much,” said Skinner of his decision to return last year.
“Which is the least of the reasons why I have decided to tour The Streets again. The other thing I’ve missed is trying to think up what I’m going to say in the gap between the songs. When you DJ they tell you that you don’t need a tour bus and you don’t need to think up things to say between the songs. But seriously, it’s been long enough.
“With my Tonga parties, the new rap and grime MC’s I have been producing and the DJing, I have been living with music since making The Streets for nearly as long as I made The Streets. I’m not the guy smoking in the car anymore though, I have become the guy in the club, so I hope I will be excused for putting on after parties in nightclubs after every show”.
