The trio worked with The Bronx guitarist and songwriter Joby Ford on the album, which was announced earlier this month.
Speaking to NME, bassist Andy Hopkins said: "We'd heard [Joby] in The Bronx and once we found out a bit about him, we thought he'd be great for the record, because he'd make it sound really fresh and raw. On the last couple of albums, we haven't really got our live sound across.
"With Joby, he helped just work on getting that across. He works in the same way as we do. It wasn't quicker, but it wasn't stressful in any way."
Hopkins also suggested that the album will be closer in sound to the band's debut album We'll Live and Die in These Towns than to their second.
He said: "With the second album, the overall sound was too big for a three-piece band.
"We've gone back to sounding more like the first album; it's more upbeat, with more catchy choruses. But, at the same time, it sounds nothing like the first album."
The Enemy will begin a short tour of the UK in May, following two gigs in their home town of Coventry. They are also due to perform at next month's FA Cup final.
Streets in the Sky will be released on May 21.
