But that’s not all; in an extraordinary turn of events, Mike Skinner is making his directorial debut with a feature film of the same name, intimately intertwined with the album.

This is a manifestation of Skinner’s unrivaled creative prowess, showcasing his commitment to artistic excellence on his own terms.
