'The Day Is My Enemy' is on course to be Number 1 in the Official Album Charts
The Prodigy have projected the artwork for their new album ‘The Day Is My Enemy’ onto landmark London building, Battersea Power Station.
The projection happened earlier this evening (April 2), and saw a huge version of the fox-featuring cover art taking up one entire side of the building. Scroll down for pictures of the event, which the band shared via their social media accounts. The band famously played the Power Station in 1997.
‘The Day Is My Enemy’ is the first album released by the band for six years, following on from 2009’s ‘Invaders Must Die’. The band’s sixth LP to date, it also features contributions from Sleaford Mods.
‘The Day Is My Enemy’ marks the 25th anniversary of the band, but Liam Howlett recently said of their future: “I’m always suspicious of bands who last too long. But the music proves whether you’re ready to let it go or not. When people hear this album they’ll hear it’s still got energy in it. This band keeps us young.”
He continued: “The new breed of DJs, some of them are really lazy. It’s just not on. Pre-mixing a set before you’ve even got to a venue — all this stuff should be live.”
Read NME’s review of ‘The Day is My Enemy’ here. NME’s Phil Hebblethwaite wrote: “Unquestionably, every song has been written to add firepower to the band’s live show, but it’s nonetheless the strongest and most confident Prodigy album since ‘The Fat Of The Land’. Depending on what you think of their last two records, perhaps that’s not saying much, but it feels like the group are back, even though they’ve never been away.”
The Prodigy were Number One in the Official UK Album Chart at yesterday’s (April 1) midweek stage with the record. The album was released on Monday (March 30) and could become their sixth album to go to Number One.
