Peter Gabriel releases the track “So Much” taken from his upcoming album, i/o.

Gabriel has been releasing songs every full moon of 2023. “So Much” marks the seventh track from the forthcoming album. Talking about the new song, the singer said:

“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.”

The rocker also mentioned:

“‘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.”

The new track featured the artwork “Somewhere Over Mercia” by Henry Hudson. Gabriel explained:

“I started looking at Henry’s work and thought it was great.
“He’s done some dense and intricate work with plasticine, but then he also has this other more expressionist, horizon work with different colors and they’re very simple and pure. I connected quite strongly with him.”

Meanwhile, Gabriel recently wrapped his European and U.K. tour, where he was seen performing several songs from i/o that has still no confirmed release date yet. He is scheduled to embark on a worldwide tour with North American dates kicking off in September 8. He said:

“It’s funny, you think you’ve just got it all working properly and it’s time to finish, that’s how most tours that I do go.
“The idea of trying to integrate the art with the music has worked well, I think people are feeling it. That was my dream, to get more intensity to the experience and in the same way that we work hard creating moods and atmospheres and trying to say something with the music, obviously, these artists are very accomplished at doing that in the visual world.”
