Scratch My Back

PETER GABRIEL Scratch My Back (2010 UK 12-track CD album - 'Scratch My Back' is the first part of a series of song exchanges in which Peter and other leading artists reinterpret each other's songs. To help craft his recording of the album's eclectic array of cult favourites and classic tracks, Gabriel enlisted former Durutti Column member John Metcalfe, composer, arranger and the expertise of producer Bob Ezrin [Pink Floyd's 'The Wall', Lou Reed's 'Berlin'] and engineer, mixer and producer Tchad Blake [Suzanne Vega, Sheryl Crow, Tom Waits]. Gabriel describes this as a very personal record with twelve songs performed only with orchestral instruments and voice. He made the choice not to include guitar or drums. The album's richly diverse sounds include the sparse romance of Lou Reed's 'The Power of the Heart', the powerful musical journey of Elbow's 'Mirrorball' and an epic arrangement of Arcade Fire's 'My Body Is A Cage')
