No Tourists

Album: No Tourists (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the title track of The Prodigy's seventh album. Their principal songwriter, Liam Howlett, explained its meaning to Mojo magazine.

    "No tourists, the title, is about trying to escape all the s--t and step off the track. What we're saying is we like the idea of people exploring again, they've forgotten how to do that, because they can just pick up a device, go online for two seconds and go, 'Oh, okay that's the answer, that's what it is, oh yeah.'"
