Peter Gabriel recently released the latest song from his upcoming album, i/o.
“Olive Tree” is the eighth track from the album. The song’s first version to be heard is the Bright-Side Mix by Mark “Spike” Stent.
Written and produced by Gabriel, “Olive Tree” is another song about connection, both how we interact with nature and the other species around us, but also a greater sensitivity to the potential for broadening human experience.
“In some ways I do think we are part of everything and we probably have means to connect and communicate with everything that we often shut off,” said Gabriel. “We only want to see and listen to the things that seem important and relevant to us and shut out the noise of everything else when, probably, hidden in that noise there are all sorts of things that can help us realise our place in this future world.”
The song features a string arrangement from John Metcalfe, with further contributions from Manu Katche on drums, Tony Levin on bass, David Rhodes on guitar, Josh Shpak on trumpet and additional percussion from Ged Lynch.
This month’s full moon release comes with artwork from the artist Barthelemy Toguo and his work “Chroniques avec la Nature.”
