THE S/T SCOOP: Liam Howlett of The Prodigy Reveals New Record Details

Well, sorta. Here’s what the Prodigy mastermind said to say about the still-unfinished affair during a lengthy interview, the entirety of which will be posted here soon:

I’ve got the album title, which I can’t tell you. I’ve got the song titles, which I can’t tell you. I mean, I want to talk to you about it but it’s not the time yet. Anyway, it’s pretty all over the place, with the one similarity being that they will all be played live. It’s a more exciting sounding record than the last one. Some would say it was more of a solo project, which we needed to do at the time. This is definitely more of an album getting us back towards [where we were at the beginning].

Howlett also had a lot of nice things to say about the UK’s current dubstep trend, as well as Justice, whom he called “really exciting. When you’re dealing with Justice, you’re dealing with quality. It’s not just immature. It’s sick.” A Prodigy album possibly influenced by Justice and dubstep? Who knows? Whatever happens, Howlett hopes to have the record done and ready for a 2008 release.

Oh, by the way: The Prodigy would have played SxSW this year … had they finished the damn disc.
