The Streets: "I Love My Cellphone"

Mike Skinner, aka The Streets, is a man of many interesting thoughts. Few, however, grip me as much as this love tribute to his cellphone, aptly named "I Love My Phone."

You may prefer his musings on how fit his girl is, whether or not he did too many drugs, or what happened to his thousand quid. But me? I want to know his deep feelings for his cellphone.

The track, complete with the existential questioning "how would I survive without my outside line" and Nokia's soothing SMS beeps, is available as a free download on Skinner's twitter page, and is rumored to appear on his next album, entitled "Computer Blues." I'm just happy The Streets chose this week for his outburst of musical nerdery, as it fits in well with Gizmodo Listening Test. [Twitter via The Fader]

Love The Streets!! It's been an up and down for albums. OPM and A Grand Don't Come For Free were both AMAZING!! The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living Blew, the newest album is pretty damn good.

I love my cell phone too! But that's because it's an iPhone...not some shitty Nokia.
