The Prodigy are to release their first album in three years worldwide through BMG in early 2018. The album on their Take Me To The Hospital label will be preceded by a single later this year, and will form part of a sustained burst of activity from the band through 2018 and beyond.
The new recording deal with BMG marks a deepening of the company’s relationship with the band. BMG already publishes Liam Howlett’s entire song catalogue.
“The Prodigy are one of those bands who define an entire sound and can justifiably claim to be among the architects of contemporary music. We are delighted to have the opportunity to release what will undoubtedly be one of the most important records of 2018.” said BMG UK EVP Music Korda Marshall.
The Prodigy’s last album, The Day Is My Enemy, reached Number One in the UK, making it their sixth album to hit that position in their home territory and charted Top 10 throughout Europe and Australia and at Number Two on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart.
BMG President Repertoire & Marketing Alexi Cory-Smith said, “Four years ago we signed a deal to represent Liam’s publishing and the relationship is a successful and enjoyable one. Liam is a genius, he and the band have a lot of fans in this building and we love working with him. It is fantastic now to be able to work with The Prodigy on records too.”
