Hear Three Tracks From Peter Gabriel’s New Blood

Peter Gabriel toured with an 46-piece orchestra last summer, and he was so stoked on the live permutations of the songs that he piled the orchestra into the studio with him to rerecord a number of his hits with new arrangements. To prep you for the release of New Blood, we’ve got the premiere of three songs from the record: “Don’t Give Up”, “Digging in the Dirt,” and “Darkness.” (“Don’t Give Up” that features Ane Brun doing Kate Bush’s part.) It’s great to hear Gabriel pop back in again in a contemporary landscape as his music has generated renewed appreciation.
