Peter Gabriel teams up with his daughter and Brian Eno for song ‘Four Kinds Of Horses’

The track explores the “interesting overlap of religion and peace [with] violence and terrorism”

Peter Gabriel has released new single ‘Four Kinds Of Horses’, which features his daughter Melanie on backing vocals alongside Brian Eno on synthesiser – check it out below.

Released on Friday (May 5) to coincide with the full moon, the song is the latest track to be shared from Gabriel’s upcoming solo album ‘i/o’ following ‘Panopticom’ and ‘The Court’.

Gabriel said that ‘Four Kinds Of Horses’ explores “the interesting overlap of religion and peace on the one hand and violence and terrorism on the other”, and was inspired by the Buddhist parable of the same name, “which describes different ways a student can approach their spiritual practice”.

He went on to describe Eno’s synths as “sounding like electric worms”, while Melanie’s vocals provide “another lovely moment for a dad”.

Speaking about ‘i/o’, Gabriel said: “Some of what I’m writing about this time is the idea that we seem incredibly capable of destroying the planet that gave us birth and that unless we find ways to reconnect ourselves to nature and to the natural world we are going to lose a lot. A simple way of thinking about where we fit in to all of this is looking up at the sky… and the moon has always drawn me to it.”

While the album doesn’t yet have a release date, Gabriel is set to head out on a headline tour of Europe, North America and the UK later this month.

The run of shows starts May 18 in Poland before reaching the UK in June – tickets are available here. The North American leg begins in September and tickets for that can be found here.
