Peter Gabriel's new album 'New Blood' has been made available to stream online a week ahead of its release (October 10) – scroll down and click below to hear it.

The former Genesis man has reimagined 12 of his classic tracks for the record, which follows 2010's covers album 'Scratch My Back'.

Songs such as 'Digging In The Dirt', 'Downside Up' and 'San Jacinto' have been reworked by composer and arranger John Metcalfe, alongside Gabriel and the 46 piece New Blood Orchestra, conducted by Ben Foster.??

The album also features a version of 'Solsbury Hill' which is preceded by 'A Quiet Moment' – five minutes of ambient sound recorded on Solsbury Hill, Somerset.

Gabriel has also re-recorded his 1986 single 'Don't Give Up' with singer Ane Brun.

He recently revealed that the original track was supposed to feature Dolly Parton, who turned down the guest spot. In the end he said he was "glad" to have completed the recording with Kate Bush instead.

Gabriel told The Quietus:

Dolly turned it down… and I'm glad that she did because what Kate did on it is… brilliant.
