The surviving members are in the process of finishing their new album to honour the late Keith Flint.
The frontman of the hugely influential dance group took his own life in March 2019, and ex-keyboardist Leeroy Thornhill recently spoke about their plans.
He previously said: “I’m in contact with the guys all the time. We got together on the anniversary of Keith’s death and went out to celebrate his life. It was all good.
“I know Liam wants to finish The Prodigy album he was doing, I don’t know how far along he is.”
The record will be the follow-up to 2018’s ‘No Tourists‘, their last made with Flint before his death.
Reflecting on Flint’s death, Thornhill added: “It’s devastating, there’s not a day that goes past where I don’t think about him, and it generally comes with a smile.
“All that guy did was bring joy to millions and millions of people. He made his choice to do what he did and it doesn’t matter how much it hurts and how much we regret it.”
