We finally have the release date and all of the details for Gary Numan’s next album. On social media this morning, the legendary synthpop pioneer announced that Intruder will be out on May 21.
You can pre-order Intruder here.
Intruder will be Numan’s 18th solo album. It follows a series of albums, Splinter (Songs from a Broken Mind) and Savage (Songs from a Broken World), that are some of Numan’s best work. Savage was among my top albums of 2017.
Here’s what the release notes say about Intruder:
Whereas ‘Savage’ depicted earth as a barren wasteland in which humanity and culture had been largely crushed by the effects of global warming, ‘Intruder’ presents a fresh but complementary narrative. It’s a philosophical examination of a potential future apocalypse: the planet can only survive by purging its inhabitants.
Numan recorded Intruder with producer Ade Fenton, who has been largely responsible for the musician’s electrifying new sound. It’s their fifth album together since Jagged in 2006.
The album’s lead single and its title track will be released on Monday, January 11.
