Edward Snowden, Cameo in Peter Gabriel's video 'The Veil'

cszg85gusamvlif

There is also a cameo from Edward Snowden in Peter Gabriel's video The Veil. The song is part of the soundtrack of Oliver Stone's film, which tells the story of the American computer scientist known for having publicly revealed details of several US government mass surveillance programs, hitherto kept secret. 

Here is the article that talks about Rolling Stone, By

Peter Gabriel has shared his new music video for "The Veil," a track inspired by and written exclusively for Oliver Stone's Edward Snowden film Snowden. In addition to photos from Snowden's past and footage from the upcoming biopic, the video features a cameo by the whistleblower himself, who is seen walking through the woods and gazing at his computer monitor.

The lyrics also draw from Snowden's story. "Some say you're a patriot / Some call you a spy / An American hero / Or a traitor that deserves to die," Gabriel sings on the track. "There's no safe place to go / Now you've let that whistle blow / Show exactly what is going on / Show exactly who was looking on."

"The Veil" is Gabriel's second new composition following a three-year hiatus, arriving after the singer's Muhammad Ali tribute "I'm Amazing."

Snowden is out in theaters Friday. "I was very happy to learn Oliver Stone had decided to make a film about Edward Snowden and believe this is a powerful and inspiring film," Gabriel added. "Oliver takes his music very seriously and I have always enjoyed collaborating with him and [music supervisor] Budd Carr."

 

 

Peter Gabriel's The Veil, the New York Times review

It has been included among the best songs of the week by the prestigious New York Times. Here then is the review of The Veil by Peter Gabriel (In English)

Having Peter Gabriel write the song for Oliver Stone's "Snowden," the film about the computer systems administrator who revealed the extent of secret government surveillance, was a match so neat it seems almost inevitable. Mr. Gabriel realized the implications of the internet early on, and well before that his songs had reckoned with the ways that larger systems grind down individual liberty. He's also a master of shadowy, suspenseful, paranoia-stoking production, like the ticking percussion and staggered bits of melody he uses in "The Veil." The lyrics are on topic: "Some say you're a patriot, some call you a spy / An American hero or a traitor that deserves to Die. "But Mr. Gabriel finds the broader implications, too, as he sings," There's no safe place to go. "JP

Peter Gabriel: Clues and Admissions Leading to New Album "I / O"

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.

Select Language

English English Italiano Italiano

All Peter Gabriel fans are wondering how far is the new album "I / O".

And Peter is having fun sowing some clues. The last is the interview with UNCUT Magazine, of July 16, 2020:

 

First, in an interview with the BBC on June 16, 2020 in which he 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.

The site genesis-news.com had signaled Peter Gabriel's reaction to a Times article (see Matt LeDonne's image taken from genesis-news.com).

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:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0003zly

In the winter of 2018 Peter published this post on Facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/PeterGabriel/photos/a.10151980348369760/10155778088174760/?type=3

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.
