The Prodigy Releases Grungy New Single ‘Need Some1’ with Album Announcement


The Prodigy – Need Some1

Known as one the pioneers of electronic dance (more specifically the big beat genre), The Prodigy have been influencing the genre’s landscape since the early 1990s. They’ve even been compared to The Chemical Brothers and Fatboy Slim because of their alternative and hardcore sound. Band member Liam Howlett states they own the “Evil Rave” sound and after selling 30 million records with multiple honors, they’ve certainly carved out a niche of their own.  So far, they’ve racked up 6 studio albums over the course of three decades, but now the trio is now preparing to enter their next chapter. To continue their domination, they bring us their newest single ‘Need Some1′ AND the announcement of their forthcoming album No Tourists.

‘Need Some1’ is intense, aggressive and edgy. Its got an element of techno, house and rock that’ll keep you raging for hours. By combining the old dance music sound with the new, The Prodigy brings us something we need to hear. The track even borrows a classic soulful vocal from Loleatta Holloway to add an extra layer of “umph” to the already hardcore track. In addition, the sample is an ode to where the band members’s sound originated from.

‘Need Some1’ is just giving us a hint of what will be on The Prodigy’s full length album No Tourists. Set to debut November 2, the album will be full of tracks that are built to be played live.

On speaking of the album Liam stated,

“This album is equally aggressive as the last records – but in a different way. 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.”

A video, that is equally as violent and edgy accompanies the single’s release. The trio is coming back in full force with their new music, giving us all the more reason to listen to them. Watch and give ‘Need Some1’ a play below.
