In it Mike gets the run around from a mystery female celeb...
Mike Skinner says the first single from The Streets' new album is about his failed attempts to pull a female celeb.
When You Wasn't Famous will be the first release from third album The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living " but at the moment Mike's keeping schtum about who the starlet is. According to publicity material for the track the song tells "the true story of Skinner's pursuit of a celebrity girl that put him right back to square one of the dating game."
Speaking about the album as a whole, Mike said: "It isn't a narrative. But to be honest I don't think I could write an album without feeling like there are plots going on. Actually this album is a true story.
"After A Grand Don't Come For Free I was like, 'What am I going to write about?' I can't moan I've got no money any more, but then it gradually dawned on me that my life is so crazy! You'd never believe some of the stuff that's happened to me along the way in countries far away."
When You Wasn't Famous is released on March 10, with The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living following on April 10.
