    Thanks heaps for the tip on this – Peter Gabriel’s ‘So’ album is a personal favourite, and on this new album he’s covering some great people, particularly Arcade Fire and Bon Iver. I’ll be sure to check it out.

      my pleasure! glad someone else is excited about it, too. he may have lost his way a little bit over hte 90’s, but i think his choice over cover songs proves that he never lost touch. you should definitely give the sneak preview a listen!
