New video: The Escapist by The Streets

Video: The Streets – “The Escapist”

From Everything is Borrowed, due in the UK on September 15.

Mike Skinner says: “During a great period of intense mixing we decided that it might be nice to shoot a video. This isn’t the way the record industry works and so it was under the radar of the label and done totally for us by us on a shoe string. It was totally different from any other promo that I’ve made in that it was something real that we just filmed rather than trying to create something real looking using lots of people and lots of angles. I feel like it’s more than a video in that sense. As well as looking quite odd without all the singing and quick cuts.”
