The Prodigy Hit the Number One Spot in the UK Album Chart
The Prodigy have topped the UK album chart this week with their latest album ‘The Day Is My Enemy’.
Released on Take Me To The Hospital/Cooking Vinyl via Essential Music & Marketing with Proper Music Distribution providing the fulfillment, the new album marks the sixth time the Prodigy have topped the UK album chart. Their previous number one albums are Music For The Jilted Generation (1994); The Fat Of The Land (1997); Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned (2004); Their Law: The Singles 1990-2005 (2005) and Invaders Must Die (2009).
Uncompromising first single ‘Nasty’ fires out of the cannons like a ferocious statement of intent and finds Keith Flint at his snarling best. Premiering as Zane Lowes “Hottest Record in the World” earlier this year on BBC Radio 1, it set the tone perfectly for the new album.
The Prodigy have always cut a solitary path through the noise-scapes of electronic dance music. They’ve dropped five epoch defining studio albums and delivered unforgettable live performances that have taken electronic beats into unchartered territories. Throughout this time they’ve remained resolutely focused on their own vision, inspiring legions of artists along the way.
‘The Day Is My Enemy’ is probably the most British sounding album you’ll hear this year. Not British in the flag waving jingoistic sense, but in a way that understands that the night time spaces of urban Britain are a multi-hued cacophony of cultures.
