Gary Numan has shared an evocative new single, “Saints And Liars,” which hits hard both sonically and metaphorically. It's the third single released from his upcoming album Intruder, set to arrive May 21st.
Numan has previously spoken about the theme of the album, explaining: “Intruder looks at climate change from the planet’s point of view. If Earth could speak, and feel things the way we do, what would it say? How would it feel? the songs, for the most part, attempt to be that voice.”
The new wave icon describes the latest single, “Saints And Liars” as an exploration of “our blind faith in religion, in a fictitious God, who in reality does nothing for us, while at the same time abusing and destroying the planet, which does everything for us.” Listen below.
