Ever find yourself in need of a wake-up call? Do you ever want that call to take the shape of a closed fist plunging straight at your melon? Well, friend, it seems The Prodigy have your number with “Need Some1,” the lead single off their forthcoming release No Tourists will have you marching into the weekend like the Kool-Aid guy marches into a brick wall.
“Need Some1” is a banger that is heavier hitting and more cohesive than anything in the electronic music landscape today, which is something they’ve cornered the marked on for over two decades. Expect the rest of the album to offer the same kind of no holds barred, balls to the wall rage-face found in this track.
One of my favorite quotes from Liam Howlett on No Tourists,
“When asked what the new album sounds like, my response is: Evil Rave. We own that sound.”
No Tourists is due out Nov 2nd digitally, on CD, vinyl, and because they like to go the extra mile, on cassette. Pre-order the album here. Check out the video for “Need Some1” below and head here to find the track on streaming services.
