So who better to join him than the nation’s favourite lost soul and column inch absorber Pete Doherty, Babyshambles’ iconic front man and someone who knows a thing or two about prangin out.
Dawn Shadforth has created a suitably nightmarish and Shining-esque video to accompany the track, with Mike stuck in that hotel, slowly losing the plot and only finding rest at the bottom of a full bath tub. It’s a claustrophobic piece of short cinema that again displays his genius in front of the camera.
The double a-side release also features the edited version of ‘Deluded In My Mind’ - the soundtrack to The Streets’ record-breaking 20 minute long video made in conjunction with MTVs 25th birthday. Directed by Alistair Siddons, Mike’s chorus linked the stories of four young film makers, and wrestled the title of World’s Longest Video from Michael Jackson’s Thriller.
"What an honour and a privilege to be asked to spit on Prangin. I wish I'd written a chorus that good - say no more" – Pete Doherty
Single released 25th September on 679 Recordings.
