petergabriel Stream: Peter Gabriels song swap project And Ill Scratch Yours

Peter Gabriel is streaming both sides of his song-swap project, Scratch My Back … And I’ll Scratch Yours, in full via NPR.org.

Originally released in 2010, Scratch My Back features orchestral reworkings by Gabriel and the New Blood Orchestra of songs from David Bowie, Lou Reed, Radiohead, Arcade Fire, and Regina Spektor, among others. Returning the favor, many of those same artists tackle Gabriel’s own songs for And I’ll Scratch Yours, most notably Reed, Arcade Fire, and Spektor. David Byrne, Bon Iver, and Feist also contributed covers to the project.

And I’ll Scratch Yours officially arrives January 7th via Real World Records (pre-orders are ongoing). Both albums will also be available as a limited-edition two CD set.
