Electronic music icon Gary Numan returns to the spotlight

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) -

Electronic music pioneer Gary Numan's new album is a grim vision of the future, set in a "windswept hell" after global warming has created violent tribes.

Numan says he has to credit Donald Trump for helping the CD "Savage (Songs from a Broken World)" come together. How's that? Trump?

Numan explains that by the end of 2015, he was pretty happy and didn't know what to write about.

So Numan "liberated" some ideas from an unfinished post-apocalyptic novel he's been working on for years. Trump's stance on climate change helped sharpen his vision.

Says Numan: "Trump appears and gave the whole thing a focus it really didn't have before."
