The Prodigy have released details of Nasty, the electronic dance rock titans' new single and video, and forthcoming album The Day Is My Enemy.
Liam Howlett, Keith Flint and Maxim’s new album, the follow-up to 2009’s Invaders Must Die, will be released on March 30, via the band’s own label Take Me To The Hospital, through Cooking Vinyl.
The first single from The Day Is My Enemy is Nasty, which drops on February 9. You can watch the Nasty video above.
The Prodigy headlined at Knebworth last summer, and tickets for their May UK tour, which includes two dates at London’s Alexandra Palace, went on sale today (Wednesday, January 14).
The Day Is My Enemy takes the listener on a journey through the unchartered underbelly of urban nightlife, where anger is an ever-present energy lurking just beneath the surface of an edgy calm.

Liam Howlett said: “I can’t tell you why this record came out so angry, I think its just in-built in me.
“It’s more about what I like music to do. I’ve always seen music I like as a form of attack.
“That’s what I use music for, it’s an attack. I didn’t plan this album to sound violent, it’s just the sound that came out of the studio, a kind of build-up over the last four years.
“ ‘Anger is an energy’ – that’s a lyric which always resonated with me.

“The tension is buried deep in the music right from the first drop.
“It’s all about the sound having that sense of danger. That’s what The Prodigy sound is about.”
Uncompromising first single Nasty is a ferocious statement of intent and finds Keith Flint at his snarling best.
Premiered as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record in the World on BBC Radio 1 this week, it sets the tone perfectly for the new album.
