Peter Gabriel Shares New Song “I/O (Bright-Side Mix)”: Listen

For the last few months, Peter Gabriel has been releasing songs from his long-teased album I/O on each month’s full moon. Following “Panopticom,” “The Court,” and “Playing for Time,” he’s now released “I/O (Bright-Side Mix).”

Gabriel wrote and produced “I/O” at his Real World Studios in Wiltshire, England, and also at the Beehive in London. The single features Soweto Gospel Choir. In a statement about the song, Gabriel explainedD:

This month the song is “I/O” and “i/o” means “input / output.” You see it on the back of a lot of electrical equipment and it just triggered some ideas about the stuff we put in and pull out of ourselves, in physical and non-physical ways. That was the starting point of this idea and then trying to talk about the interconnectedness of everything. The older I get, I probably don’t get any smarter, but I have learned a few things and it makes a lot of sense to me that we are not these independent islands that we like to think we are, that we are part of a whole. If we can see ourselves as better connected, still messed up individuals, but as part of a whole, then maybe there’s something to learn?

Gabriel is set to tour Europe this spring, kicking off his tour in May in Krakow, Poland. The tour swings through North America in September and October.
