Peter Gabriel recently released the seventh track from his upcoming album i/o.
This month the song is “So Much” and the first version to be heard is the Dark-Side Mix, by Tchad Blake.
Like the previous full moon releases, “So Much” will come with differing mix approaches. Mark ‘Spike’ Stent‘s Bright-Side Mix and Hans-Martin Buff‘s Atmos mix (In-Side Mix) will be released later this month.
Written and produced by Gabriel, “So Much” is “a simple song” that features a string arrangement from John Metcalfe and contributions from Tony Levin on bass, David Rhodes on guitar and backing vocals from Peter’s daughter Melanie Gabriel. The song was recorded at Real World Studios, Bath, The Beehive and British Grove, London.
“So Much is about mortality, getting old, all the bright, cheerful subjects, but I think when you get to my sort of age, you either run away from mortality or you jump into it and try and live life to the full and that always seems to make a lot more sense to me,” said the English rock musician. “The countries that seem most alive are those that have death as part of their culture.”
i/o the tenth studio album by Gabriel, is scheduled to be released late this year by Real World Records.
