Peter Gabriel has released a new song to celebrate the life of the late Muhammad Ali.
The track, titled ‘I’m Amazing’ was debuted by the former Genesis singer on Thursday – and is written from the iconic boxer’s perspective.
“Look at me, look at me, can you see what I can do?”, Gabriel sings on the track.
In a Facebook post, Gabriel explained how he had been motivated to write the song several years ago, after becoming inspired by Ali’s era-defining battle for black civil rights and equality.
Gabriel wrote: “I wrote a song a few years back – ‘I’m Amazing’, which was, in part, inspired by Muhammad Ali’s life and struggles and at the time of his death, when so many people are celebrating his life and thinking about all he achieved, it seemed the right time to release it.”
The track is Gabriel’s first single in nearly three years, following the release of ‘Why Don’t You Show Yourself?’, taken from the 2013 live concert album and film ‘Back To Front: Live in London’.
Muhammad Ali died on June 3 after a lengthy battle with Parkinson’s disease.
