The Prodigy are reportedly in the thick of finishing their new album — set to honour the legacy of late frontman Keith Flint.
The band’s ex-keyboardist Leeroy Thornhill recently appeared on Paul Danan’s The Morning After podcast, where he revealed that the group “got together” to commemorate the year since Flint’s passing.
“I’m in contact with the guys all the time,” he revealed. “We got together on the anniversary of Keith’s death and went out to celebrate his life. It was all good.” Thornhill went on to reveal that keyboardist and songwriter Liam Howlett was chipping away at new The Prodigy record.
“I know Liam wants to finish The Prodigy album he was doing, I don’t know how far along he is.”
The record will mark the first release since 2018’s ‘No Tourists‘, their last record before the passing of Flint. Back in August, Liam Howlett shared a photo of himself in the studio, revealing that new material was on the brew.
“Back in the studio making noise,” Howlett wrote at the time, accompanying the post with tags like #weliveforever and #cantstoptheorkc. “Brand new Prodigy tunes are gonna roll.”
Reflecting on Flint’s passing, Thornhill shared: “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.”
Keith Flint took his life back in March last year. The surviving members of The Prodigy recently paid tribute to the late icon in a tribute shared to social media.
“One year has gone by since you left us, we miss you everyday man, your light blazes strong,” the tribute reads. “You will always be here with us coz as you know – WE LIVE FOREVER…!
“Stay Punk brother, forever in our hearts.”
