[Citation |last=Michaels |first=Sean |title=The Streets announce final album |url=http://music.guardian.co.uk/news/story/0,,2283498,00.html |publisher="The Guardian" |date=2008-06-02 |accessdate=2008-07-16] Skinner wrote on his MySpace page that one rule he set himself while recording this album was to not have any references to modern life in the songs, although that information was later taken down.

The album's first single, "Everything Is Borrowed," was released on September 29, 2008.Citation |last= |first= |title=The Streets offer new track as free download today (July 30) |url=http://www.nme.com/news/the-streets/38536 |publisher="NME" |date=2008-07-30 |accessdate=2008-08-04] In the months leading up to the album's release, "The Escapist" was offered online as a free download, accompanied by a music video. The video (directed by Ted Mayhem) [Citation |last= |first= |title=Get your free download from Birmingham's The Streets |url=http://www.sundaymercury.net/entertainment-news/celebrity-news/2008/07/30/get-your-free-download-from-birmingham-s-the-streets-66331-21437843/ |publisher="Sunday Mercury" |date=2008-07-30 |accessdate=2008-08-04] follows Skinner as he walks 770 miles from Dover to a beach in France, [Citation |last= |first= |title=Mike Skinner films epic trek through France |url=http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2008/aug/10/popandrock3 |publisher="The Observer" |date=2008-08-10 |accessdate=2008-08-27] [Citation |last=Michaels |first=Sean |title=The Streets release new material ... and ruin Reeboks |url=http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2008/jul/31/streets.release.free.download |publisher="The Guardian" |date=2008-07-31 |accessdate=2008-08-04] a feat Skinner actually undertook.

During the recording of the album, Skinner states that he "threw away more music than is on the album now," as he was unhappy with the material recorded, but that "the album is a product of all the stuff I threw away, it was important to the album."Citation |last= |first= |title=Skinner to release one more album |url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/7554269.stm |publisher=BBC |date=2008-08-12 |accessdate=2008-08-13] "Everything Is Borrowed" will be the penultimate album from The Streets; Skinner has said that he signed a five-record deal, and that he always envisioned a five-album box set.
