Following January's raging Piggy, Skunk Anansie have shared another new single: Can’t Take You Anywhere.

"This track is a double-edged sword," explains vocalist Skin. "We all have that one friend that we love but is a total embarrassment to us, a mate that has no off-button and no filter. So if they aren’t losing their phone / keys / coat, they’re saying some stuff that will defo get you cancelled by all your other mates.

"This song is about how polarised the world is now, and how careful you need to be. It’s about dealing with the new world order of friendship, as never before have I had great long-term friends develop completely opposing views to mine. It's about having to navigate and understand people, keeping the love and respect but also standing firm in your opinions."
