What you need to know about the Massive Attack - Prodigy collaboration, why it wasn't on the soundtrack for The Beach, when it might be released, pictures of Liam with 3D and the soundfile of a hoax...
the last winter the track
No Souvenirs was the biggest 'hope' for us Prodigy
fans. The collaboration with Rob Del Naja aka 3D
from Massive Attack was the only new track of which we knew it existed
and everyone was hoping to get to hear it in February 2000 on the
soundtrack to The Beach. However, it then wasn't
put on the soundtrack and many music magazines as well as the official
Massive Attack website announced it was going to be released as single
in April 2000. Now, almost 3 month later, it still hasn't seen the
light of day and no plans of releasing this track have been announced
either, so you might wonder what has happened to it. Staying patient
is, as always when waiting for new Prodigy material, the only thing
you can do. As it seems now the track won't
be released in the near future and might just be on the next Prodigy
album Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned.
Now since we're all so desperate for new Prodigy material and everyone is dying to finally hear this No Souvenirs song, a few weeks ago Prodigy fan Greg Bedwell announced he had found a promo of it and gave the link to the mp3 to a few selected friends. Some people actually believed it was genuine and were a little bit shocked, e.g. Erik Westlund: "Whenever I hear this 'no no no no' it just makes me puke!"
It is very obvious a hoax but still entertaining, so you can download the mp3 (only 314kB) from here:
