U.K. electronic band The Prodigy appear to be breaking their studio silence at last and are ready to release some new music very soon. The pioneering trio has discussed at length in interviews and has been peppered with questions about the possibility of a new album over the past six years. Very little information has emerged about the new album except that Liam Howlett was busy writing and recording, but sometime in the spring of 2015 the album was tentatively scheduled for release. Now they have provided more details about new music by teasing the cover art of their upcoming single "Nasty Nasty" on Instagram. The song will apparently come out, according to the caption, sometime in January, though they will not reveal the exact date. There will probably be another announcement then.
The Prodigy's latest studio effort was 2009's Invaders Must Die and has largely gone quiet since then. Maxim has been busy pursuing a solo career of his own, while the group have done sparse touring in the past few years.
2015 appears to be a big return for them. They have already been announced for some big festival runs like Future Music Festival in Australia alongside artists like Drake and Avicii, as well as Snowbombing Festival with fellow electronic music legends The Chemical Brothers.
Beyond the upcoming single, there are no further details about when the album will be released or when more singles will be released.
The still untitled album was signed to Warner Music after the group signed to management team Three Six Zero Group, home of deadmau5, Calvin Harris, Feed Me, R3hab and many other big name dance DJs.
