Scratch My Back / And I’ll Scratch Yours

Peter Gabriel will release the reciprocal “response” to the original covers recording he did called Scratch My Back (February, 2010) . The album, And I’ll Scratch Yours is the concluding part of a series of song exchanges in which he and other leading artists reinterpret each other’s songs. It will drop on September 23rd.

  1. Love this sampler and can’t wait for the CD. Peter’s covers seemed to me to be far too safe, too similar to the originals, not interesting or Peter Gabriel – like enough…this collection already feels much more creative and musical!
