Mike Skinner (a.k.a. The Streets) will drop his third album, The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living, on April 25. But that's sort of old news. The exciting thing is that The Streets just announced a US tour in June with UK grim sensation Lady Sovereign as the opening act. The trek will include stops at Chicago's Intonation Festival and Bonnaroo, as well as appearances on Kimmel and Letterman.
Skinner will begin streaming the entire new album on his MySpace page on April 18, so set a reminder or something.
