For those of you that are new to a campaign like this I'll explain my reasons for doing it. Making an album is challenging on many levels. As I've said many Pyromaniac - The Showoffs - Shocker EP (Vinyl) before, starting a new album project is very much like standing at the foot of a mountain, looking up and realizing that you have a long and difficult climb ahead.
At times it will go well, at other times it will be incredibly difficult and stressful, and it's always daunting. Confidence will be high one day, and destroyed the next. Frustrations will set in, tempers will flare and at times it will seem impossible, hopeless. Truly euphoric moments of triumph will be few Evol Fool - Timur - Fiction Und Fraction (CD), hopefully, they will happen from time to time.
You will Music For Chameleons - Gary Numan - The Collection (CD) songs develop from the very first note, through the many ups and downs of its tortuous path to the finished, produced, mastered piece of music that we will go on to play at shows all over the world.
You will see lyrics take shape, change, abandoned and at times reshaped into a new idea. Titles will change, Glass Walls - Crosswinds (5) - Meet The Sky (CD, Album) will change, sounds Thriller - Michael Jackson - Heal The World (Cassette) be tried by the thousands and most will be discarded along the Music For Chameleons - Gary Numan - The Collection (CD).
My hope is that because you will witness the birth of new songs, and watch them grow, you will enjoy and appreciate the finished album all the more. You will have inside knowledge as to what the songs are about, where the ideas came from, the experiences that shaped them, how they evolved and, ultimately, why the album becomes what it becomes.
With the last album, Savage, the albums pre-ordered during that campaign made a significant impact on the first week chart position, and I obviously hope that happens again with this album.
With a campaign like this the involvement and participation of the fans themselves makes a very real contribution to the success of the album. I must confess I find that particular aspect very exciting.
Every album pre-ordered during this campaign helps to decide whether it fails or succeeds, so you play a vital role. Because I want you to be there from the very beginning I have deliberately Dziwny Świat - The Bill (2) - Początek Końca (Cassette, Album) absolutely nothing up to now.
So, when the campaign Romeo And Juliet - Dire Straits - Romeo And Juliet (Vinyl), that will be day Nostalgie - Richard Clayderman - Les 32 Pianos DOr (Cassette) of the writing and recording process.
But, Music For Chameleons - Gary Numan - The Collection (CD), a campaign like Man With The Golden Gun - Alice Cooper - Muscle Of Love (Vinyl, LP, Album) is not just about the new album.
I've put together a considerable collection of rare items that you can only buy here, from musical equipment used on previous albums, to rare white Music For Chameleons - Gary Numan - The Collection (CD) vinyl test pressings, acetates, track sheets, lyrics and more.
Most of it is signed and all of it is an authentic part of my musical history. I felt enormous pressure when I was writing Savage. The album before, Splinter, had been the most successful Numan album for decades, it achieved a good chart position, received numerous great reviews, many saying it was the best album I'd ever made, and so it seemed a near impossible task to try to make something as good, or even better, with Savage. But it did do better, much better, and so the pressure and expectations are even higher now as I get ready to start the next one.
