Gary Numan has announced the first single ‘My Name Is Ruin’, taken from his upcoming album ‘Savage (Songs From A Broken World)’ which will be released on 15 September via BMG.
The album, which will be Numan’s 22nd record, is set in an apocalyptic, post-global warming Earth with no technology left and most of the planet turned into a desert wasteland.
“The songs are about the things that people do in such a harsh and terrifying environment,” explains Numan. “It’s about a desperate need to survive and they do awful things in order to do so, and some are haunted by what they’ve done. That desire to be forgiven, along with some discovered remnants of an old religious book, ultimately encourages religion to resurface, and it really goes downhill from there.”
