Gary Numan has a new album Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind) out October 15th and this week he released a music video for “Love Hurt Bleed” off the album. Gary Numan rocks an Edwardian style ensemble and eyeliner. The video is reminiscent of videos from the heyday of music videos. The viewer in the video is the classic music video hot girl and gets attacked by video tape and pulled into what seems like a relic of a video she unearthed from some vault and popped into the TV in the viewing room. The director Joel Knoernschild explains, “‘Cars’ is often cited as one of the first full-length commercial music videos ever. 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.” Plus there is a set of creepy skull children!
