The Prodigy Say They’re Done Releasing Albums, Hope to Stick To EPs
U.K. electronica group the Prodigy said in an interview published today (July 14) that they would rather not release full length albums anymore, saying that they would prefer to only make EPs from now on. Watch the video interview below, via NME.
Songwriter Liam Howlett said:
We want to get to the point where we release EPs instead of albums. We're not really bothered about releasing albums any more. It just bores the s--- out of me. The whole process just takes too long. If we can just get a couple of EPs written, then we can get them out more quickly and it's better for everyone… time has changed, you know what I mean?
Vocalist Maxim added, "Album cycles take like five years. The fans are hungry, we're hungry for music. It's good for inspiration all round to keep the music going and keep putting things out."
Howlett also revealed that the band is already working on a follow-up to their 2015 album The Day Is My Enemy, saying, "I'm already working on new tunes. I'm always writing beats. That's just what I like doing. So if I got any spare time, I'll just write a couple of things. But there's no finished tracks or anything."
