Prodigy Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned


The Prodigy’s fourth studio album, Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned was released on 23 August 2004 (14 September 2004 in the USA.) A precursory and experimental single, “Memphis Bells”, was released in very limited numbers, followed by the traditional release of the single “Girls”. The U.S. version of the studio album contained a bonus track; a remix of “Girls” entitled, “More Girls”.

5,000 digital copies of “Memphis Bells” were sold over the Internet. Each copy was a combination of customer-chosen instrumental, rhythmic, and melodic options, of which 39,600 (of 660,000 total) choices were available. Five mixes were sold in three file formats, WAV, two audio mixes in MP3, and a 5.1 DTS surround sound mix and all were free of Digital rights management. The experiment was a success, with the 5,000 copies being sold in just over 36 hours in spite of server problems from the demand.

In 2005, they released a compilation, Their Law: The Singles 1990-2005, which spawned a single containing new remixes of the songs “Out of Space” (the “Audio Bullys Remix”) and “Voodoo People” (the “Pendulum Remix”). The latter was also followed by a music video filmed in Romford Market, Essex, which featured on the DVD release of the compilation. Sharky, the group’s only female member, is shown running and winning the race depicted in the video.

The Prodigy’s first two albums (1992’s “Experience” and 1994’s “Music for the Jilted Generation”) were re-released in expanded, deluxe editions on 4 August 2008[7]. As well as being remastered, the new packages feature a bonus disc including mixes, rarities and live tracks. The two albums also feature expanded artwork in addition to the new musical content. The band also showcased 4 new songs at the Oxegen Festival in the early hours of 13 July; among the tracks previewed were “Worlds On Fire”, “Warriors Dance”, “Mescaline” and “First Warning”, which recently featured in the gangster movie “Smokin’ Aces” and as soundtrack in game “Need For Speed: Undercover”.
