On 14th October, Mortal Records presents Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind), the inspired new album by pioneer, chart-topper and influential artist Gary Numan. Featuring guitarist Robin Finck (Nine Inch Nails, Guns N Roses) and produced by long-standing collaborator Ade Fenton, the album will be followed by a full national headline tour in November.
‘Splinter’ finds Gary on fine dark electronic form; sounding both cutting-edge and classic Numan, it marks his best work since the late 70s, early 80s heyday. Although Numan released a straight-to-the-fanbase album ‘Dead Son Rising’ in 2011, this is his first self-penned full album since ‘Jagged’ in 2006.
In recent years he’s been quoted as an influence by everyone from Lady Gaga to Kanye West, Matthew Dear to Queens Of The Stone Age, The Foo Fighters, Nine Inch Nails, Prince and J Dilla, to Boyz Noise, Richie Hawtin and Battles (they released a single ‘My Machines’ on Warp Records with Numan in 2011).
