Gary Numan says his new album has a real purpose

Gary Numan is a big advocate for the environment on his upcoming new album. 

On his new album, the 80’s rocker told the Canadian website Exclaim, "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?"

Numan, who first found fame in the U.S. with "Cars," said these songs on his upcoming album "attempt to be that voice, or at least try to express what I believe the earth must feel at the moment."

He indicated that the album conveys the sense that the planet "feels betrayed, hurt and ravaged. Disillusioned and heartbroken, it is now fighting back. Essentially, it considers human kind to be a virus attacking the planet. Climate change is the undeniable sign of the Earth saying enough is enough, and finally doing what it needs to do to get rid of us, and explaining why it feels it has to do it."

Intruder will be released on May 21st. The title song was released on Monday.It’s up on YouTube.
