Now confirmed through Gary's website...

The Savage album is officially finished and is now just waiting for the artwork designs. The final mixes were completed last week by Nathan Boddy in London, working alongside Gary and producer Ade Fenton, and the album was them mastered by Matt Colton at Alchemy Mastering on May 19th.

The track listing for the standard album is:
Ghost Nation, Bed Of Thorns, My Name Is Ruin, The End Of Things, And It All Began With You, When The World Comes Apart, Mercy, What God Intended, Pray For The Pain You Serve, Broken.

An extra track ‘If I Said’ will be added to the Deluxe CD as well as the vinyl version. The vinyl version also gets a second extra track called ‘Cold’.

I think I have loved pretty much everything he has ever done so naturally getting a copy, Deluxe Edition of course, is definitely something I'll be getting, I'll pull the money together somehow!

Lead single from the forthcoming 'Savage' album featuring his daughter Persia in the promo...

Fantastic mirrored and normal images of arid rocky desert landscape. As for the sound marvellously moody and epic in scope... lighter than 'Splinter' and 'Pure'.

Deluxe Edition now up for pre-order...

Love the new artwork, image and typeface used on cover. I soooooo want to hear this now that I have been tantalised by 'My Name Is Ruin" =D =D

Have to say I'm enjoying the songs I've heard so far from the new album.

Got my copy on Saturday, very impressed with both the atypical packaging and the eleven tracks topping out at about 62mins. Not much else to say, guess I need to hear a few times for any further thoughts

Gary's new album is currently at No.2 in the mid-week chart. He looks set to achieve his first Top 10 album in 35 years! That would be some achievement.

Good on him.

Lots of 80s artists are doing well for the first week of a new release and then dropping like a stone afterwards including Alison Moyet, Erasure and OMD.

OMD landed at a very respectable #4 on the chart in week 1 and dropped to #55 week 2.
They all seem to be 2 week wonders and then gone.

That just suggests their loyal fanbase all buy it in week 1, and once those people have got it there probably aren't many casual fans other than in dribs and drabs.

But the elephant in the room is if OMD, Sparks, Numan etc can do it, why can't the Human League?

Agreed. And of course they can. It's all about getting your music out on as many formats (cd, vinyl, deluxe cd and even tape) to get those high chart placings. Hardcore fans will buy it. Look at Numan this week - in at #2. Fair play to him.

OMD ended up at 147 this week from #55
Chart run of #4 #55 #147 Can understand why some would say why bother.

I imagine it's the cachet of being able to say that you've had a hit album. At the end of the day, the record books will show that Numan's Savage album charted at the same position as Depeche Mode's Violator, Pet Shop Boys' Actually and Yazoo's Upstairs at Eric's.
