Peter Gabriel Releases New Song ‘Four Kinds of Horses’

    Peter Gabriel has released ‘Four Kinds of Horses’, the latest single to be lifted from his forthcoming album i/o. The song, which follows previous offerings ‘Panopticon’, ‘The Court’, ‘Playing for Time’, and the title track, features Brian Eno on synthesizer and Gabriel’s daughter Melanie on backing vocals. Listen below.

    ‘Four Kinds of Horses’ came together with XL Records founder Richard Russell and was originally intended for his Everything Is Recorded project. “He’s a friend (and founder of XL Records), and he asked me to pop into his studio,” Gabriel explained in a statement. “I came up with some chords, melodies, and words on top of a groove he was working on. We tried a few things that didn’t altogether work, and so it laid dormant for quite a while. Then I started playing around with it again and changed the mood and the groove, and something else began to emerge with a better chorus.”
