‘SPLINTER (SONGS FROM A BROKEN MIND)’ HITS UK TOP 20 ALBUM CHART
Gary made it back into the Top 20 for the first time in 30 years when his much anticipated and critically acclaimed new album ‘Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind)’ hit #20 on the Official UK Album Charts at the weekend.
Not since ‘Warriors’ in 1983, which hit #12, has Gary had such a high placing in the UK charts. The chart position marks a much-heralded return to the spotlight with a host of cool blogs and mainstream press once again recognising the electro legend’s genius.
Talking about the return to the charts Gary took to Twitter to thank his fans: “#Splinter Number 20 on the UK album chart! My first Top 20 in 30 years. Thanks to all that’ve bought it so far. Very happy. GN.”

Fans in Germany can watch the video via Vevo here
“Having the opportunity to work with Gary was tremendously exciting, as well as a little intimidating”, says the video’s directorJoel Knoernschild. “’Cars’ is often cited as one of the first full-length commercial music videos ever, so we had some pressure on us. We shot with four video cameras ranging from mid 1970s to early 2000s plugged into an old tube TV. Then we shot the TV with an Arri Alexa, one of the best HD cameras in the world. There’s lots of mixed media in the video and all of the effects you see were done live. There are no VFX shots done in post production.”
‘Love Hurt Bleed’ appears on the new album ‘Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind)’, out October 15th North America / October 14th UK/ROTW.
