The Streets have dropped a new single, Too Much Yayo.

The song is the latest to be lifted from their new album, 'The Darker The Shadow, The Brighter The Light', which is due out on October 20. It follows the first single, Troubled Waters. After a pared-back start, just before the halfway mark the club beats kick in and the track shifts gears. Frontman Mike Skinner said:

“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"

The follow-up to 2020's 'None Of Us Are Getting Out Of This Life Alive'  will be accompanied by Skinner's first feature film, which shares its name with the new record.

The group will support 'The Darker The Shadow, The Brighter The Light' with an autumn UK tour that will finish on November 16 with a London show at Alexandra Palace. Prior to that, they'll play Cardiff's Alexandra Head on September 7 as part of The Bay Series, and Dreamland Margate the following day for the Margate Summer Series.
