A long-time advocate of artist independence, ‘Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind)’, will be released on Numan’s own label Machine Music. Numan co-produced his 20th studio album with long-time collaborator and producer Ade Fenton and also features some sublime guitar work from Nine Inch Nails guitarist Robin Finck. The album was recorded in England and completed at Numan’s home studio in Los Angeles, California, following his permanent move to the US at the end of 2012.
