Peter Gabriel released a new song…but block off some time, because it’ll take you 8 minutes to listen to it. This is the first new music from Gabriel in nearly two years and comes right before he hits the road with Sting. To be honest, I’m not all that thrilled with this track. It sounds like he pulled this one out of a really bad 90’s dance club. I give it a big ole’ ‘meh’. Listen for yourself below:
As Gabriel explains, the song was inspired by Muhammad Ali. “I wrote a song a few years back – ‘I’m Amazing,’ which was, in part, inspired by Muhammad Ali’s life and struggles,” he writes on Facebook. “And at the time of his death, when so many people are celebrating his life and thinking about all he achieved, it seemed the right time to release it.” The good news is that his voice has held up – and if you’re seeing him and Sting on their tour, he should rock on his other – more solid – releases.
