Skinner’s 3rd record, 2006’s The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living, uncomfortably skirted the depths of celebrity and fame, spawning hit singles including the classic “Never Went To Church”. “Pranging Out”, which was released as a collaboration with the Libertines’ Pete Doherty, hints at the debauchery and bleakness of that period.
A more reflective collection followed in 2008 with “Everything is Borrowed.” Skinner signed off in 2011 with Computers and Blues, his final studio album with Warner Brothers.
An instagram post in October 2017 sparked a frenzy as Skinner returned with his band for a tour and plans for a film and an album, to be released in 2021. Meanwhile with his first release, the mixtape “No One Is Getting Out Of This Live Alive” , a collection of collaborations with the likes of Tame Impala, Ms Banks, Donae’o and Idles.
