Gary Numan, 'Splinter'

Synth pioneer Gary Numan this week debuted the first single off his long-in-the-works album Splinter — his first studio album in seven years, which has now received an added parenthetical (Songs From a Broken Mind) to its title — in advance of his upcoming U.S tour and dates with Nine Inch Nails.

The track debuted this week at Stereogum, which also features a lengthy interview with Numan.

The album is due out Oct. 15 in the U.S., and comes between the two legs of Numan’s U.S. tour (see full dates below), which includes a pair of Florida arena appearances at Nine Inch Nails’ opener.
