Gary Numan has released a video for new single ‘End Of Things’ from current album Savage: Songs From A Broken World. He has also announced a string of UK dates in March 2018. Tickets are on sale now. Savage... was released earlier this year through BMG and earned the best reviews of Gary’s career. He entered the UK charts at No.2, a fantastic achievement for the iconic and highly influential Figure. The British electro pioneer was also awarded the Inspiration Award for songwriting and composition at the Ivor Novellos this year.
Savage... is an album with a narrative that’s set in an apocalyptic, post-global warming Earth in the not-too-distant future. There is no technology left and most of the planet has turned to a desolate desert wasteland. Food is scarce, water even more so and human kindness and decency are just a dim and distant memory. Western and Eastern cultures have merged, more because of the need to simply survive than any feelings of greater tolerance or understanding. It’s a harsh, savage environment, as are the survivors who still roam across it.
While Numan was writing the record, Donald Trump was elected President of the United States. It made sense to make him and his climate decisions the catalyst for the apocalypse theme of the album.
