If there were a word bigger then ‘legendary’, now would be a pretty great time to use it.

Gary Numan's not just a musician, but a pioneer of sound. With eighteen albums under his belt, he still has so much to say. His latest offering Savage (Songs From A Broken World) is nothing like his previous work, which is, of course, fairly typical when it comes to a Gary Numan album. It’s challenging, expansive, full and yet skeletal at times; an album that’s as beautiful as it is harsh.

Prior to hitting the stage at Brooklyn Steel, Ken Grand-Pierre spoke Numan about seeing his daughter perform on tour, letting people into the intimacy of making an album, the age of Trump and where that leads us, and living in LA and knowing Trent Reznor. Check out their conversation below.

“I wanted people to see the first moment of a song.”
