The long-awaited album of Peter Gabriel covers, And I’ll Scratch Yours, now has a tracklisting and release date.



The record, a counterpart to Gabriel’s 2010 album, Scratch My Back, which featured the musician performing covers of songs by artists including Arcade Fire, David Bowie and Bon Iver, will be released on September 23, 2013.

All the artists that Gabriel covered have returned the favour, apart from Radiohead and Neil Young – they have been replaced on And I’ll Scratch Yours by Feist and Joseph Arthur. While “”Heroes”” was covered on Scratch My Back, David Bowie does not appear, and the song’s co-writer, Brian Eno, instead contributes.

The set seems to promise some interesting reimaginings – from Lou Reed’s “snarling” version of “Solsbury Hill”, to Brian Eno’s “frighteningly futuristic” take on “Mother Of Violence”.

The tracklisting for And I’ll Scratch Yours is:

I Don’t Remember – David Byrne

Come Talk To Me – Bon Iver

Blood Of Eden – Regina Spektor

Not One Of Us – Stephin Merritt

Shock The Monkey – Joseph Arthur

Big Time – Randy Newman

Games Without Frontiers – Arcade Fire

Mercy Street – Elbow

Mother Of Violence – Brian Eno

Don’t Give Up – Feist feat. Timber Timbre

Solsbury Hill – Lou Reed

Biko – Paul Simon
