The new album, features a mixture of new songs, instrumental tracks and specially commissioned remixes and will be available exclusively on the Tour and through the Official website . Dead Son Rising is co-written and co-produced by Numan’s musical collaborator for the last six years, Ade Fenton.      This is the first of two albums that Numan has been working on at the same time – the second, Splinter will receive a full worldwide release in 2012. Numan, who recently returned from a very successful tour of Australia and New Zealand, also appears as a guest vocalist on two new albums by Battles (on the track ‘My Machines’) and South Central (‘Crawl’). Later this year he’s set to appear at the Battles curated Nightmare Before Christmas on 10 December.      As the NME argued recently, ‘Numan’s influence on electronic music is unparalleled.’ He’s been namechecked as an influence by everyone from Kanye West to Foo Fighters and Queens Of The Stone Age, and an ever-growing list of artists have covered and sampled his music. These range from Basement Jaxx to Damon Albarn; Afrika Bambaataa to RZA and GZA from the Wu-Tang Clan.
