The "Firestarter" singer was found dead at his Essex home this morning. The Guardian reports a spokesperson for the Essex police said, "We were called to concerns for the welfare of a man at an address in Brook Hill, North End, just after 8.10am on Monday".

He added, "We attended and, sadly, a 49-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin have been informed. The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner."

Last year The Prodigy released their latest record No Tourists.

The Prodigy announced last week that they would release a limited 7" vinyl for Record Store Day.
