Song written by Kim and Ricky Wilde.
It was recorded during sessions for the album Here Come the Aliens and was released as a music video on 14 May 2020. The song starts with a quote from Christopher Hitchens (spoken by Hal Fowler) and at the end samples the melody of the song Stay Awhile.
Parts of the song can be heard in the intro of the song 1969.
Kim about 'Numinous'
I was phoning up Sean, when they were literally putting ['Pop Don't Stop', the greatest hits album] to bed, I said 'Numinous is on there, isn't it?' and he said 'Er, don't think so'. I said 'well, I want it on there'. (...) I literally snuck 'Numinous' on, because I thought 'I'm not gonna tell Rick!' (1)
Ricky about 'Numinous'
I didn't really hear it as a Kim Wilde track. I programmed it all and wrote it as a, maybe a remix or something. It had a Basement Jaxx kindof vibe to it, I suppose, and that was the main influence behind it and I didn't really hear it as a song. As a track, it's more of a remix I think. (2)
