The latest Peter Gabriel podcast has some fine news. Aside from extending his Red Blood (no guitars, no drums, orchestra) tour which features his Scratch My Back album on which I’ve already blogged, Peter has said he will take the Orchestra back into the studio to record the reworking of his own songs. The recording could be out later this summer. Then he is going to pick up his original album project again.

Only dissappointment is the new dates don’t include a return to the UK.

It is still early, but Scratch My Back may make the album of the year in my books.
