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 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.

“The Secret World tour was focused on communication and relationships - the 'phone was a perfect symbol. Robert Lepage had the idea of expanding on the telephone image using the iconic red telephone box, with a cable that extended from the square proscenium stage full length to the center of the circular stage in the audience, for the song Come Talk to Me.

On September 28, 1980 Peter Gabriel returns to Italy, but not with Genesis, as a soloist. The start of the Italian part of the tour is at the Parco delle Cascine in Florence.
For many Italian boys it is the first opportunity to see a member of Genesis live.
Genesis had been in concert for the last time in Italy on March 25, 1975.
Then there was still Peter Gabriel, he was the The Lamb Lies Down On BroadwayTour and that of the Ruffini Park in Turin, would have been the last live, for many years, due to clashes with the police. The Italian tour was in fact canceled after the incidents and scuffles in other live shows, which are about to condemn our country to a quarantine without foreign artists that lasted years.
Meanwhile, both Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett have left the band. But still none of them have come to play in Italy. So the wait is a lot.
Here's the ticket:
I remember the opening of the gatesindeed, after the first ones who have climbed over the weak barriers, all inside in a very long, liberating race, along the entire Prato delle Cornacchie, at the end of which the stage stood.
Then the long wait in the heat, in a festive and peaceful atmosphere. Until thePeter's arrival on stage, but not to start playing, but to introduce in his own way ("listen to them with the attention and respect with which you listen to me") Simple Mind strangers. And despite Peter's recommendations, for Jim Kerr's group, many objects thrown on stage and little attention.
Then finally Peter and his band start the concert. The lights go out. Everything is dark. "Intruder" starts and a certain animation begins in a sector of the lawn. Someone from the audience was right next to Peter.
Grand finale with "Here Comes the Flood". Peter sings it alone, without the band, accompanying himself on the piano.
We all hoped to hear "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" and "Back in NYC" too., which Peter had performed on previous tours. And we were clamoring for them, but we were not satisfied. The Peter Gabriel of the beautiful third solo album (see below) is now far from the sounds and even the legacy of Genesis.
On 30 September at Palasport di Torino last stage of the tour in Italy.
Here, before the concert, there was a curious episode, which raised the morale of the already excited audience even more. Some of roadies they made a joke, deciding to play an "I Know What I Like" tape.
The Palasport almost exploded, expecting like a miracle at any moment, but then, realizing that it would hardly be like this, the roar soon turned into a gigantic choir.
On the occasion of the 40th anniversary, Peter Gabriel released this rare 'Games Without Frontiers' movie recorded live in Buenos Aires in 2009.
On May 28, 2020, Peter released this video which takes up an interview made in 2002 for the release of the re-mastered CD. Gabriel talks about the realization of his third self-titled album, called melt because of the iconic cover image, created by Storm Thorgerson of Studio Hipgnosis.
And here are 10 reasons to listen to this album again.
1. It 's Gabriel' s album with a lot of studs prestigious guests, like the manufacturer Steve Lillywhite and the guitarist Dave gregory (I Don't Remember e Family Snapshot) of XTC, the beginning of the long collaboration with David Rhodes, the old friend Phil Collins and the percussionist Morris Pert (Intruder e No Self Control), the new employee Kate Bush (No Self Control e Games Without Frontiers), the English saxophonist Dick Morissey (Start), Paul Weller, then leader of the Hours (And Through The Wire).
2. For the first time Peter used thedrum machine (Games Without Frontiers e Biko, in particular) and has experienced that particular sound on drums, with the gated reverb, that characterizes Intruder, used the year after by Phil Collins for In The Air Tonight. A sound that has become a standard model for much of the English pop of the eighties.
3.Phil Collins was initially skeptical about the idea of not using dishes at all. But Peter was immovable, since he could take advantage of the high tones with a whole new set of sounds, a variety of fields to explore. Paradoxically, Gabriel was accused of plagiarizing Collins when In The Air Tonight has had worldwide success.
4. Gabriel was one of the first musicians to use theFairlight, a revolutionary synthesizer that sampled natural sounds. Peter even became its distributor in England, in partnership with a cousin. In the disc we also find new sounds for the rock groove (post-progressive) in which it is still located, such as the xylophone (Intruder), the sax (Start), the marimba (No Self Control e Lead A Normal Life), the bagpipes, the drums surdu and original South African choirs (Biko).
5.Family Snapshot is inspired by the bookAn Assassin's Diary (A diary of a murderer) by Arthur Bremer, a text that also inspired the screenwriter of the film Taxi Driver di Martin Scorsese. But another book, Dispatches, whose photos suggested some verses to Gabriel Games Without Frontiers, created quite a few censorship issues with the BBC.
6. The album seems to have a common thread of psychological deviance, addressing issues like it stalking (Intruder), schizophrenia and paranoia (No Self Control), removal (I Don't Remember), bad media influence (Family Snapshot), the absence of communication (And Through The Wire), mental illness (Lead A Normal Life). But the "political" aspect is also important. Peter takes a stand against the war (Games Without Frontiers), fear of the "other" (Not One Of Us), L 'apartheid (Biko).
7. Davide Castellini in The songs of Peter Gabriel, Editori Riuniti, points out that there are many negative expressions in titles and texts (No., no, Note, neverwithout). Peter himself had noticed, so much so that, always quoted by Castellini, he was afraid of "turn the album into a sermon to a child, full of not doing this, not doing that".
8.Gabriel was unsure whether to publish or not Biko in the disc. Despite his sincerity towards the topic, he feared that he was not a valid voice for a cause so geographically and socially distant from him. In addition, the story of Steven Biko had already been told in various songs, including A Motor Bike In Africa di Peter Hammill, his friend, collaborator, and neighbor in Bath.
9.Biko is then inserted in the album at the insistence of his friend Tom Robinson. "It was a keystone in my career as a musician and lyricist", says Gabriel, quoted by Mario Giammetti in Peter Gabriel. Not one of us, Editions sign. Indeed, Peter's journey towards the commitment to civil rights begins, which will see him in all the events that the world of music will organize to raise awareness of the planet.
10. For the cover, fourth and final collaboration with the Hipgnosis studio and its founder Storm Thorgerson. Through the technique called Krimsography, invented by the American Les Krim, a Polaroid with the portrait of Peter is manipulated with an eraser on the still fresh emulsion. And the effect melt, in fact, which gives the album the informal title, it's done.
«Ten years ago, I asked my daughter Anna to film the concert that we wanted to bring with an orchestra to the Verona Arena, a unique setting in which to perform. Despite a severe cold that prevented me from reaching the notes as I wanted, Anna, along with her collaborator Andrew Gaston and their team, did an excellent job and captured a truly special evening. "
“Anna's filming was not seen by a large enough audience. Now that many are in isolation at home, we would like to broadcast them on Real World's Vimeo channel for those interested, with my only request that you consider making a donation to one of these virus-fighting organizations:
If you prefer, donate to associations or organizations operating in your area. "
Peter in fact made the two films available in the period of lockdown for Covid-19.
And here are other videos from that concert:
«For almost 50 years I have loved Italy: the people, the culture, the food, the history and more recently Sardinia.
Italy gave us work when there was none. Particularly during the summers of the 70s, when he always managed to find something to play. The best and most chaotic tours were those in which the whole country was driven by car to make a mixture of fantastic concerts, from coastal discos to mountain soccer fields.
Both the Genesis music and mine found a wonderful and passionate audience that sang our pieces during the concerts. When we had to record a live album, I always asked first if it was possible to do it in Italy.
I speak little Italian, not very well, but enough to make me feel at home. As a family, we were deeply shaken by the daily bulletins of so many missing persons and so much suffering brought by this brutal virus. "
Peter was joined by the orchestrator and musical director John Metcalfe, the conductor Ben Foster, the soloist Louisa Fuller and the pianist Tom Cawley, together with the singers Melanie Gabriel and Ana Brun and the New Blood Orchestra.
Anna Gabriel states, on the PeterGabriel.com website:
“When I talked to my father about the filming of one of his shows, I jumped at the opportunity to shoot at the Roman amphitheater in Verona.
Italians have always been a very enthusiastic audience and give a lot to the artist and the camera.
I made this film with my friend Andrew Gaston, who was my real collaborator throughout the process.
It's always fun for me to film my dad, because I know the material and his performances so well that I feel I can capture a side of him that feels more personal to me.
I also wanted to film the orchestra in an exciting way, and along with Andrew's editing, I think we really captured the energy of the whole performance.»
