Peter Gabriel Finally Gets His Back Stratched
Three and a half years after his Scratch My Back covers album, Peter Gabriel finally gets the favour returned. And I’ll Scratch Yours – released on 23 September – features all but two of the artists, whose songs Gabriel covered originally, performing songs by Peter. Amongst the 12 tracks, Arcade Fire tackle Games Without Frontiers, Elbow try their hand at the evocative Mercy Street from So and Paul Simon performs Biko.
The new record is available on it’s own, or as a double-pack with the original Scratch My Back album.
