English rap group The Streets have announced their first mixtape in nine years by releasing a collaboration with Tame Impala, “Call My Phone Thinking I’m Doing Nothing Better.”
The song arrived with a music video inspired by current social distancing measures in the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The Streets’ vocalist Mike Skinner rings up a group of musicians on his antiquated Nokia phone from snowfields. Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker answers from a summery villa.
“Call My Phone Thinking I’m Doing Nothing Better” is the first track from The Streets’ upcoming mixtape, None of Us Are Getting Out of This Life Alive. Besides Tame Impala, other collaborators on the release include IDLES, Ms Banks and more.
The last album to arrive from The Streets was 2011’s Computers and Blues. After that record, The Streets members worked on solo projects before regrouping to release a run of singles from 2017 including “Take Me as I Am,” “Burn Bridges” and “If You Ever Need to Talk I’m Here.”
None of Us Are Getting Out of This Life Alive will be released on July 10 via Island Records. Watch The Streets’ new video below:
