Peter Gabriel shares his new song “So Much”


Peter Gabriel has released “So Much,” the seventh track off his upcoming album i/o.  Written and produced by Gabriel, a press release calls So Much a “simple song” that was made in collaboration with John Metcalfe, Tony Levin, David Rhodes, and Gabriel’s daughter Melanie Gabriel.

Each song Gabriel has released from i/o has arrived during 2023’s full moons. He shared in a statement: “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.”

Gabriel recently wrapped up his tour of Europe and the U.K., where he performed several songs from i/o, which does not have a release date yet. The North American leg of Gabriel’s tour will kick-off on Sept. 8. More information can be found on Gabriel’s website.
