Published Jan 11, 2021Gary Numan just announced his 18th studio album Intruder, and he's now given us the first teaser from the record: its title track, which has arrived alongside a new video.
As could be expected, the "Intruder" video is eerie as hell, with Numan cloaking himself in a whole lot of darkness. The clip was directed by Chris Corner, and you can watch the dramatic visual offering down below.
As previously reported, Intruder serves as the a companion piece to Numan's 2017 LP Savage: Songs from a Broken World.
"Intruder looks at climate change from the planet's point of view. If Earth could speak, and feel things the way we do, what would it say? How would it feel?" Numan previously explained. "The songs, for the most part, attempt to be that voice, or at least try to express what I believe the earth must feel at the moment."
He continued: "The planet sees us as its children now grown into callous selfishness, with a total disregard for it's well being. It feels betrayed, hurt and ravaged. Disillusioned and heartbroken it is now fighting back. Essentially, it considers human kind to be a virus attacking the planet. Climate change is the undeniable sign of the Earth saying enough is enough, and finally doing what it needs to do to get rid of us, and explaining why it feels it has to do it."
Intruder will be released on May 21.
