Peter Gabriel and the stages of his new album "I / O" (provisional title and not yet confirmed by the person concerned), in preparation for quite a few years. All the clues.
All Peter Gabriel fans are wondering where is the new album.
Here is Peter's latest Facebook post dated October 30th:
On October 21, 2021, in Milan, Peter revealed new details:
A precedent was the interview with UNCUT Magazine, dated July 16, 2020:
Earlier, in a June 16, 2020 interview with the BBC, had declared:
«As far as music is concerned, I haven't had as much time as I usually do, which is not as before. But there have been some news. There is a COVID song - well, there is a COVID lyrics, actually -. I have been asked to write something and it will probably turn into a song. So there are songs and pieces that go in the right direction ». (Interview by Matt Everitt).
In March 2020 Peter had written to a newspaper giving another indication of his compositional activity, although very slowly.
Peter has thus revealed that he is working on a new song on aging, called "So Much".
In an article of March 6, the newspaper The Times reported Phil Collins' words: "Rock old men should talk about their generation."
Peter took pen and paper and replied that he is working on one "song about aging" called "So Much".
The author of the Times article posted it on Twitter, confirming that it was Peter who replied.
In an interview with BBC Radio 6 Music in April 2019, Peter had talked about new songs and the album:
In the winter of 2018 Peter published this post on Facebook:
Again fueling the hopes of fans.
To these indications must be added the songs that Peter only mentioned, such as "Here Comes Love?", which he spoke about on Facebook on October 28, 2014 or released in various ways and which have not yet been included in an album, such as "I'm Amazing", posted on YouTube on June 17th 2016 (read here how the song was received) and inspired by the life and battles of Muhammad Ali.
The song was followed shortly after "The Veil", arrived on 8 September 2016 (read here how the song was received). It was part of the Oliver Stone film "Snowden", but without joining the soundtrack (another indication that bode well).
At the moment the picture is complete, in the sense that some material is available to fans even if, having spent so much time, we would expect something more concrete. We'll see. If you want to stay updated on developments, subscribe to our newsletter below.
