Peter Gabriel Shares New Music
Speaking of Peter Gabriel, the former Genesis singer has been busy, releasing a brand new single ‘Panopticom’ from his forthcoming album ‘i/o’. More on this here.
“The first song is based on an idea I have been working on to initiate the creation of an infinitely expandable accessible data globe: The Panopticom. We are beginning to connect a like-minded group of people who might be able to bring this to life, to allow the world to see itself better and understand more of what’s really going on”, Peter Grabriel said of the song.
The album sees Gabriel collaborate with Brian Eno, drummer Manu Katché, bassist Tony Levin, along with guitarist David Rhodes.
The former Genesis singer also spoke about the album.
“Some of what I’m writing about this time is the idea that we seem incredibly capable of destroying the planet that gave us birth and that unless we find ways to reconnect ourselves to nature and to the natural world we are going to lose a lot”.
