"Warm Leatherette" is a song by Daniel Miller.


"Warm Leatherette" was released as the B-side to "T.V.O.D.", the only single by Miller's musical project The Normal. It was the very first release on his Mute Records label, and an early example of the then-burgeoning industrial music genre. The lyrics of the song reference J.G. Ballard's controversial 1973 novel Crash.[2]

Miller plays a series of sawtooth waves on a Korg 700S synthesizer on the recording. It was recorded using 2 ReVox B-77 tape machines in Daniel Miller's apartment.

The song can be heard in the 2001 British film Me Without You.
