Gary Numan has announced the release of his 15-disc collection of singles, which will be released on November 5. The box set has been highly requested by Numan’s fans and will feature 15 singles from 1978-1983.
The Gary Numan 1978-1983 singles box will include 45” translucent color vinyls that will be presented in a white vinyl wrapped DJ case and completed with laser foiled details, chrome corner caps and more. Each box set will also come with a 64-page booklet that features notes and images. The singles box set is extremely limited with only 2000 copies being made worldwide.
The singles featured in Numan’s box set are divided between three different colored vinyls, red, blue and green and are categorized by year. The red vinyl, which strictly features 1978 singles, contains “That’s Too Bad/ Oh! Didn’t I Say” and “Bombers/Blue Eyes/O.D. Receiver.” Both of those tracks are Tubeway Army tracks, which was Numan’s band.
The blue vinyl features songs from 1978-1980 where the green vinyl features songs from 1981-1983. These two vinyls feature a variety of tracks, including a few more from Tubeway Army.
The Gary Numan 1978-1983 singles box set is being released just a couple of months after his most recent album Intruder, which came out this past May. Intruder was Numan’s 21st album.
In early June, Numan announced that he would be going on a fall tour this year following the release of his album. The Intruder Tour is set to kick off in Los Angeles on September 17. Numan will make stops in Nashville, Detroit, Minneapolis and more. He will make his final stop in Santa Ana, California on October 23.
