Peter Gabriel covers Radiohead, Arcade Fire and Elbow on new album
Peter Gabriel is set to release an orchestral covers album featuring songs by the likes of Radiohead, Arcade Fire, Elbow and Bon Iver.

Entitled 'Scratch My Back', the album is reported to be a "song swap" with a host of "extremely legendary artists" set to cover each other's material.

"The songs are not simply covers," Gabriel collaborator John Metcalfe told BBC 6 Music. "They are major reinterpretations of some famous stuff. It's quite radical."

Other artists covered include the likes of The Kinks, Lou Reed, David Bowie, Neil Young and Talking Heads.

Although the album isn't expected until spring 2010, a supposed tracklisting for the album has been released by a Japanese distributor.

The alleged tracklisting for 'Scratch My Back' is as follows:

'"Heroes"' (David Bowie)
'Street Spirit (Fade Out)' (Radiohead)
'The Book Of Love' (Magnetic Fields)
'Flume' (Bon Iver)
'My Body Is A Cage' (Arcade Fire)
'Listening Wind' (Talking Heads)
'I Think It's Going to Rain Today' (Randy Newman)
'Après Moi' (Regina Spektor or Eartha Kitt)
'Waterloo Sunset' (The Kinks)
'The Boy In The Bubble' (Paul Simon)
'The Power Of The Heart' (Lou Reed)
'Philadelphia' (Neil Young)
'Mirrorball' (Elbow)
