The Streets share homemade video for ‘I Wish You Loved You as Much as You Love Him’
The Streets have shared the visuals for latest single ‘I Wish You Loved You as Much as You Love Him’ featuring Donae’o and Greentea Peng.
The track features on Mike Skinner’s upcoming mixtape and is the second track that Skinner has shared following the release of ‘Call My Phone Think I’m Doing Better’ which featured Tame Impala. On top of that, the track was accompanied by ultimate lockdown anthem B-side ‘Where The F*&K Did April Go’ which is full of his trademark wit.
The video was entirely made by Skinner himself, the video is a multi-faceted visual shot with an unmistakably British backdrop, featuring the two artists with whom he wrote the single and also sees Skinner incorporate nuggets of meme culture sporadically throughout. Skinner proudly said: “This video took me six weeks to make! I learned a new skill on this lockdown.”
The Birmingham native earlier had this to say about the track: “This is a summer club song. Knowing that Donae’o is the king of UK Funky music — match made in heaven.”
Adding: “Greentea Peng was the perfect foil for this, her melodies are unique and she’s wicked. I’ve spent the last three weeks working on the video for this one. It better be good.”
The upcoming mixtape is also set to feature collaborations from the likes of IDLES, Jimothy Lacoste as well as the former leader of The Music and frequent Streets collaborator Rob Harvey.
