Gary Numan releases new track ‘What God Intended’


Gary Numan has today released track What God Intended  from forthcoming album ‘Savage : Songs from a broken world ’ due next month.

“What God Intended is one of the stranger songs on the album,” explains Numan. “The choruses are mostly instrumental and the three verses, each entirely different from the other, all sit over a huge, slow moving groove.”

‘Savage: Songs From A Broken World’ 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.

The tracklisting for the standard CD edition of ‘Savage: Songs From A Broken World’ is:

  1. ‘Ghost Nation’
  2. ‘Bed Of Thorns’
  3. ‘My Name Is Ruin’
  4. ‘The End Of Things’
  5. ‘And It All Began With You’
  6. ‘When The World Comes Apart’
  7. ‘Mercy’
  8. ‘What God Intended’
  9. ‘Pray For The Pain You Serve’
  10. ‘Broken’
