And Now a Musical Interlude

WITNESS co-founder Peter Gabriel has a new album. Called And I’ll Scratch Yours, it’s a follow-up to Peter’s covers album, Scratch My Back.

On the new album, artists covered by Peter on Scratch My Back return the favor and cover his songs. They include Peter Burn, Arcade Fire, Regina Spektor, Lou Reed and Paul Simon among others. Here’s a sampler:

“The songs came alive in new clothes,” Peter tells the Wall Street Journal about having others take control of his songs. “Once I let myself go, I realized the kids have to go off and stand on their own two feet.”
