The Savage album is officially finished and is now just waiting for the artwork designs. The final mixes were completed last week by Nathan Boddy in London, working alongside Gary and producer Ade Fenton, and the album was them mastered by Matt Colton at Alchemy Mastering on May 19th. The track listing for the standard album is:
Ghost Nation, Bed Of Thorns, My Name Is Ruin, The End Of Things, And It All Began With You, When The World Comes Apart, Mercy, What God Intended, Pray For The Pain You Serve, Broken.
An extra track ‘If I Said’ will be added to the Deluxe CD as well as the vinyl version. The vinyl version also gets a second extra track called ‘Cold’.
During his recent trip to the UK to mix and master the Savage album Gary also signed a label services deal with BMG for the Savage. Alistair Norbury at BMG showed a keen interest in the album within days of the Pledge Campaign getting underway in late 2015 so it’s particularly satisfying to see this relationship complete. As Gary said recently on his Facebook page “A huge thank you must go to BMG’s Alistair Norbury. Thank you Alistair for your confidence in me and your enthusiasm to make this happen.” BMG are soon to announce the official 2017 release date of the album.

A short promotional film ad for the forthcoming Savage UK Tour has now been added to the official Gary Numan YouTube channel. You can view the HD version of the ad by clicking on this link. As well as clips of classic Numan songs the ad also includes several clips of new songs from the forthcoming Savage album.
Gary was presented with the Ivor Novello Inspiration Award at the music industry Ivor’s awards in London on May 18th. The Ivor’s are extremely prestigious awards given out to songwriters by their peers at a red carpet ceremony once a year in the UK. The Inspiration award specifically ‘honours an exceptional songwriter who has inspired the creative talents of others’.

I’m really pleased to announce that we have permission to include Meet and Greet opportunities on the European leg of the Savage tour. These are now available on the Numan Store.
When I toured the UK last year on the Classic Album tour we filmed the Liverpool Olympia show on September 16th. It’s now a DVD called Legacy and is available on the Numan Store should you want a copy.
The DVD also includes a behind the scenes interview where I talk about the reasons behind going out on tour with those three albums (Replicas, The Pleasure principle and Telekon) and revisiting all those older songs again.
Track listing is: Replicas, Metal, Remind Me To Smile, Me I Disconnect From You, Films, The Joy Circuit, You Are In My Vision, M.E, This Wreckage, We Are So Fragile, Observer, I’m An Agent, Down In The Park, Tracks, We Are Glass, Are ‘Friends’ Electric, Cars, I Die:You Die, Everyday I Die, My Shadow In Vain.

Thought it worth a mention that I’ve been looking at early design ideas for the stage and light show for the Sep/Oct tour. It’s going to be even more spectacular than the Splinter shows. Can’t wait for you to see it!!
We’ve had to close the Tour Dates page for the moment. The information displayed on the Tour Dates page is fed to this site via the Bands In Town App/Site.
