In his upcoming album, due on February 15th, ´Scratch my back´, Peter Gabriel will cover song from various artists, including Simon´s ´The boy in the bubble´, from the Graceland album. All arrangements are for orchestra and do not include guitar or drum parts. Further information (and a nice podcast with information concerning the choice of the songs and the making of the album, plus the free download of one of the songs) on http://www.petergabriel.com/

Gabriel also considered ´Hearts and bones´ and ´Father and daughter´ as possible candidates among Simon´s songs.

In a following project (called ´And I´ll scratch yours´), the songwriters whose songs have been sung by Gabriel, will arrange and perform one of Peter´s song. Paul Simon is scheduled to cover ´Biko´.
