Peter Gabriel - Scratch My Back Pop

Despite having been releasing records since Genesis' 1968 debut single, Scratch My Back is only Gabriel's eighth solo studio album. Scratch My Back  features a dozen voice and orchestra cover versions of songs by contemporary musicians including Bon Iver, Radiohead and Lou Reed. The coverees will return the favor by recording versions of Gabriel's songs on the forthcoming I'll Scratch Yours.
