The Prodigy‘s The Day Is My Enemy topped the UK Albums chart. This marks the group’s sixth Number 1 album on the chart. The Number 1 album can be attributed to the innovative marketing campaign. The album cover art was displayed on the side of the buildings in London including the Battersea Power Station, the Shoreditch High Street underground station, and The Houses of Parliament complex. The Day Is My Enemy is led by the singles “Nasty,” “The Day Is My Enemy,” “Wild Frontier,” and the new single, “Wall of Death.” The first single, “Nasty,” peaked at Number 23 on the UK Dance chart, and Number 98 on the UK Singles chart.
