    Mike Skinner, also known as British MC The Streets, has delayed the album that was promised later this year. Skinner posted on his MySpace blog that the follow-up to 2006's The Hardest Way to Make an Easy Living was pushed back to early next year.

    In a seemingly panicked tone, Skinner wrote in his post, "Making an album when you're quite well known is a bit stressful. I've had to accept this week that because my album isn't quite right yet it won't be coming out this year.

    "I think I've got the makings of a great record," the rapper added, "But I've been working so hard on it my head is spinning at the end of every day and when I wake up each morning the first thing I feel is panic.

    "I've decided to try to get some distance from it while we do this Scotland tour, Get Loaded (In The Park) and Ibiza. This also means I'll maintain my tidy pattern of releasing an album in 2002, 2004, 2006 and, now, 2008." No release date was set for 2008, but The Streets will tour some shows throughout the summer, including the Ibiza Rocks festival on August 6.
