The Prodigy announce new album 'No Tourists'. Share video for lead single 'Need Some1': Listen
The follow up to 2015's 'The Day Is My Enemy' is previewed by a gritty, debaucherous video for lead single 'Need Some1' that is typical of the band's controversial style.
The Prodigy are returning with their first new album since 2015’s 'The Day Is My Enemy'. Titled 'No Tourists', it’s due out November 2 on BMG.
The album, which is the iconic and controversial British electronica band’s seventh studio effort, is written, produced and mixed by The Prodigy founder, keyboardist, and songwriter Liam Hewlett, and as Spin points out, was recorded over the course of the last year. Of the album, the band wrote in a press statement: “To us, No Tourists is ultimately about escapism and the want and need to be derailed. Don’t be a tourist—there is always more danger and excitement to be found if you stray from the set path.”
In anticipation of the album, The Prodigy has shared the lead single from the album, 'Need Some1'. The single comes with an accompanying raw and gritty music video that's typical of the outfit's style. Directed by Paco Raterta, the video encapsulates the group’s trademark "abrasive, yet danceable vibes with all its raw, urgent glory". Shot entirely in Manilla, Philippines, the video is full of heavy drinking, gratuitous violence and general depravity - all the usual suspects that make up a Prodigy video! The music video ultimately culminates in a live show and a vicious mosh pit as the electronica swells to its maximum chaotic limits. Pre-order the album through The Prodigy's official website and check out the music video below, followed by the album art for 'No Tourists'.
