"Intruder" by Gary Numan

New from legendary electronic pioneer Gary Numan, "Intruder" is a song from an album that Numan says explores "climate change from the planet’s point of view." "Intruder" is a companion piece to Numan’s last album, 2017’s "Savage: Songs From a Broken World," which was a concept record set in a post-apocalyptic world that’s been transformed into a desert by global warming. In a statement, Numan said that on Intruder he tried to express what the Earth must feel at this moment. “The planet sees us as its children now grown into callous selfishness, with a total disregard for its wellbeing,” he said. “It feels betrayed, hurt, and ravaged. Disillusioned and heartbroken it is now fighting back. Essentially, it considers humankind 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.”
