In a posting on his MySpace blog, Skinner noted that the group's upcoming LP - their fourth - would be titled Everything Is Borrowed and would have a "peaceful, positive vibe" in comparison with 2006's The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living.
He explained: "If you like The Streets you are about to experience the peaceful, positive vibes that comes after a disturbing work such as the last you heard."
Skinner added that the fifth and final record would be similar to Lou Reed's Berlin.
"The final Streets album (the fifth one) will be dark and futuristic. This could not be further from the album you're about to hear, but it's what is on my mind at the moment. I feel inspired by the synthesizer exhibition we just visited in Graz [Austria] after the gig we just did."
