PETER GABRIEL | The Making Of I/O (or any new album) - website special

  • I don't think Peter would like to record another LP. He seems to not achieve (lyrics...) some song that he written so long ago. So an LP ? What a joke. Once again, Peter needs a new team and an agressive producer like Bob Ezrin if he wants to finish one of his different project.

  • I don't think it will still be called I/O. And actually I don't really care anymore what it will be called, he just needs to release a bloody new record with new music. :)

    Totally agree. peter is so creative, it's a shame he has created so little lately. Up is one of my favorite albums, and I was so excited that I/O was going to come out later that year or the next....

  • 71, multi millionaire - the last thing I'd be doing would be work or trying to please strangers.

    Depends how much you like what you do, really. I'm reminded of something Stephen king said once, that he retired after he published his third or fourth book (roughly something like that). The point being he didn't have to work anymore, writing became a hobby instead of a job.


    Be sweet if people paid me millions to read, listen to music and veg out in front of the laptop.

    you’ve got a point here - but then again, he always did stuff and worked on things we never would have guessed. I also think he wouldn’t do a real concept album like The Lamb, but I am also sure that a new album, if there is one, will not just be a collection of tracks

  • anyone noticed both Phil and Peter have released their last album (not talking bout soundtracks etc) with new music in 2002?

    True

    But a new Collins album seems more unlikely than a new Gabriel record. At least we know that Gabriel has been working on new stuff for years ...

  • Well, about a new album - I wonder how many of the tracks Peter initally wanted to use for I/O will end up on the final record. He must have had a clear idea what would end up on I/O, possibly Nocturnal, Baby man, I'm amazing etc - but I think none of those tracks will be considered (some of them were used elsewhere anyway).


    What do you think?

    What do you think?

    I doubt he will use much of that. I mean the originally intended tracks. As you wrote, some of that was used elsewhere and to be honest, neither I’m Amazing nor Baby Man etc really would fit on a great Gabriel album.


    So let’s see what he will come up with. I am sure Love Can Heal, which was played in 2016, will be on it.


    Also, I’d love to hear Son Of Ovo at some point !!
