“There are still people trying to work out what a genius Gary Numan is.” Prince

“Synth-pop and industrial pioneer” Rolling Stone

“I was always impressed by the way Gary Numan found his own voice–and it was unusual–but it was unmistakenly him and boldly him. I see me doing what I learned from him.” Trent Reznor, Nine Inch Nails

The influence of Electronic and industrial music pioneer Gary Numan has been recognized by a diverse array of the world’s greatest artists—from Prince to Lady Gaga, Jack White to Kanye West; Beck to Queens Of The Stone Age, and The Foo Fighters to Nine Inch Nails, many of which have collaborated with Numan and covered or sampled tracks from his vast back catalogue. While Numan’s unique, pioneering style continues to connect, he has never stopped innovating. His latest album, ‘Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind)’, is evidence of this desire to never standstill and the album marked Numan’s return to the UK Top 20 Albums Chart and Billboard 200 for the first time in over 30 years. The subsequent Splinter World Tour took in more countries and dates than any Numan tour since 1981 and ended with his biggest headline show in over 30 years at the legendary Hammersmith Apollo in London.

During the recording of ‘Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind)’ Numan continued to tour extensively and was personally invited by super-fan Trent Reznor to join Nine Inch Nails on the band’s ‘Wave Goodbye’ tour. Numan performed several of his own songs on stage with NIN each night, including ‘Cars’ and ‘Metal’, which NIN had previously covered. Numan also co-wrote the Battles single ‘My Machines’, and his music continued to stay in the spotlight with artists such as Jack White’s The Dead Weather covering the classic ‘Are ‘Friends’ Electric?’ and the Foo Fighters taking on ‘Down In The Park’, which they not only recorded for the X-Files movie soundtrack but would also perform live.

Numan’s unique vocal style evokes a feeling of machinery and icy alienation whilst provoking strong emotions within the electronic noise of classic albums such as ‘Replicas’, ‘The Pleasure Principle’ and ‘Telekon’ that connects with his loyal and ever-growing fan base of self-proclaimed Numanoids.
