Peter Gabriel’s “Scratch My Back”

On “Scratch My Back,” Peter Gab­ri­el inter­prets songs by artists he admires: Dav­id Bowie, Paul Simon, Elbow, Bon Iver, Talk­ing Heads, Lou Reed, Arcade Fire, The Mag­net­ic Fields, Randy New­man, Regina Spek­t­or, Neil Young and Radi­o­head. Peter has taken the col­lab­or­a­tion to new levels by ask­ing these artists to rein­ter­pret and per­form their favour­ite Peter Gab­ri­el song to be released as double A sides on iTunes. After the cycle is com­plete, all 12 recip­roc­al songs will have been unveiled via the Full Moon Club.

Peter is ask­ing you to join this excit­ing col­lab­or­at­ive event. He wants you to “Scratch His Back” by cov­er­ing the clas­sic song “Games Without Fron­ti­ers.” Take the stems from this 1980 hit and reima­gine them in your own style. Peter Gab­ri­el him­self will be choos­ing one col­lab­or­at­or to be flown out to the UK to mas­ter the win­ning mix at his Real World Stu­di­os. The mix will be released as a double A side single, along with the ori­gin­al ver­sion of the song, through the Full Moon Club.
