Mainman Liam Howlett spills the beans on the long-awaited follow up to 'The Fat Of The Land'...

Prodigy will release their new album in March 2003, according to songwriter LIAM HOWLETT.

Following the release of recent single ‘Baby’s Got A Temper’, Prodigy are regrouping, with Howlett attempting to finish the long-awaited follow-up to 1997’s’The Fat Of The Land’.

He revealed that the record, which has a working title of ‘Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned’, will be released in March, preceded by another new single.

When asked when the record would be released, he told XFM: “March next year, We’re gonna release a single that’ll be the proper single to lead up to the album just before. That’s when it’ll all start.

Howlett said that he’s only completed five songs that he’s happy with, with other songs not quite right. He continued: “I’m not happy with them. I’m a perfectionist and its gotta be right”

He said that his current favourite artists are Queens Of The Stone Age, Primal Scream and Can, and the new songs show a “shift” towards a vocal based sound.

‘Baby’s Got A Temper’ might not feature, because it is “more akin to something off the last album than the new one”, according to Liam.
