PETER GABRIEL has his new 9th album, named i/o out soon
(no exact release date yet) following Scratch My Back from 2013.

So far he gave us lead single Panopticum
and follow-up The Court, two funky thrills.

And here’s #3. It’s called PLAYING FOR TIME.
An almost 6-and-a-half-minute piano ballad,
joined near the end by a strings orchestra.

Single artwork

Gabriel: “It is more of a personal song about how you assemble memories and whether
we are prisoners of time or whether that is something that can actually free us. I do think it’s good to push yourself towards more bold or interesting experiences because then you will have richer memories to feed you when you get to my age. You also get taught by every meaningful experience that you go through.”
