Peter Gabriel Premieres ‘Playing For Time’

Peter Gabriel has shared another song from the upcoming ‘i/o’ album, with another Full Moon premiere ‘Playing For Time’.

Gabriel has released a song a month for the past three months on the night of the full moon ahead of the album release.

‘Playing For Time’ was recorded at Gabriel’s Real World Studios in Wiltshire and The Beehive in London.
‘Playing For Time is a song that I have been working on for a long time and have performed live, without lyrics, so some people may be familiar with it. It’s been an important song for me. It’s about time, mortality and memories and the idea that each of us has a planet full of memories which get stashed inside the brain.
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.’

Peter Gabriel will commence his ‘i/o’ world tour in Poland on 18 May.

A release date for the ‘i/o’ album is still to be announced.

I could go to a James Taylor show just for the stories. The man is a part of music history and is still around to tell the tales of how it all began.

"Paul went away and started the label and George went away and wrote the song”, he said.
