English electronic group The Prodigy have now put a working title to their sixth studio album and follow-up to 2009’s Invaders Must Die. The new album will be titled How to Steal a Jet Fighter, and is already described as being ‘Darker And Heavier’, much like their early material.
Frontman Liam Howlett spoke to NME about getting back together to record and what to expect, “We’re really excited about it. The last record was kind of a party album, I guess. We were all happy to be back together again. But the best tunes of that album are the ones that have less of that. It’s definitely going to be heavier, darker.”
When asked about whether they would evolve the music to go in the almost inevitable direction of dubstep, he said, “All the dubstep stuff that’s around, we’re loving it, but that’s not our game. We won’t go near it.”
The Prodigy will be playing at the Download Festival in June with other headlining bands Metallica and Black Sabbath. They’re sure to play some of the new material then.
