Peter Gabriel Shares New Single ‘So Much’

    Peter Gabriel has released ‘So Much’, the latest single from his upcoming LP i/o. A release date for the album has not yet been announced, but we’ve already heard the singles  ‘Panopticom’‘The Court’‘Playing for Time’, ‘Four Kinds of Horses’, ‘Road to Joy’, and the title track. Listen to ‘So Much’ below.

    In a statement about the track, Gabriel said:

    I was trying purposefully not to be clever with this. I wanted to get a very simple chorus but one which still had some substance to the harmony and melody. Something that was easy to digest but still had a bit of character to it. 

    So Much is about mortality, getting old, all the bright, cheerful subjects, but I think when you get to my sort of age you either run away from mortality or you jump into it and try and live life to the full and that always seems to make a lot more sense to me. The countries that seem most alive are those that have death as part of their culture.

    … The reason I chose So Much as a title is because I’m addicted to new ideas and all sorts of projects. I get excited by things and want to jump around and do different things. I love being in a mess of so much! And yet it also means there’s just so much time, or whatever it is, available. Balancing them both is what the song is about.
