With their highly-anticipated new album and short film 'The Darker The Shadow The Brighter The Light' out on the 20th October via 679 Recordings / Warner Music UK Ltd, The Streets have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Too Much Yayo' follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Troubled Waters' in previewing their new LP and coinciding short film.

Speaking about the new offering, leader 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."
