Gary Numan has begun to work on the follow up album to the highly successful Savage album. He has created a Making Music campaign to give you access to the journey. You can go along for the ride and experience the first recorded note all the way to the finished album, including things like witnessing the creation of artwork as it happens to hearing song audio and video.
Gary says the following about the journey
You will see lyrics take shape, change, abandoned and at times reshaped into a new idea. Titles will change, arrangements will change, sounds will be tried by the thousands and most will be discarded along the way. My hope is that because you will witness the birth of new songs, and watch them grow, you will enjoy and appreciate the finished album all the more. You will have inside knowledge as to what the songs are about, where the ideas came from, the experiences that shaped them, how they evolved and, ultimately, why the album becomes what it becomes.
Because I want you to be there from the very beginning I have deliberately written absolutely nothing up to now. So, when the campaign launches, that will be day one of the writing and recording process. But, a campaign like this is not just about the new album. I’ve put together a considerable collection of rare items that you can only buy here, from musical equipment used on previous albums, to rare white label vinyl test pressing’s, acetates, track sheets, lyrics and more. Most of it is signed and all of it is an authentic part of my musical history.
Below are some of the things that you can purchase to contribute to the campaign. Visit his Making Music site for more details.
