The World According to Peter Gabriel

by Smaël Bouaici, translated by Christopher Steele

A figurehead of the British prog rock scene with Genesis, Peter Gabriel, who will turn 70 on February 13th, later became a champion of world music and an example of the politically engaged artist, through his label Real World, his Womad festivals and of course the protest song “Biko”, etched into the history books and made famous from the Amnesty International tour concerts. Let’s take a look back at the career of a pop star not like the others.

The 2000s are more scant in terms of new releases, with only one album, Up, in 2002. Focussing on his festival, his music label and working on a music streaming service well before the major players convert to this way of thinking, he received the Man of Peace award in November 2006, from the hands of the former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. Peter Gabriel returned to music in 2012 with the diptych Scratch My Back / And I'll Scratch Yours, which played on inter-artist emulation. The first album contains stripped back covers of songs from his friends in the industry (David Bowie, Paul Simon, Elbow, Bon Iver, Talking Heads, Lou Reed, Arcade Fire, Magnetic Fields, Randy Newman, Regina Spektor, Neil Young, Radiohead) and the second one, released in 2013, sees these same artists reinterpreting Peter Gabriel’s songs.

His latest release to date is Rated PG, a compilation released in the spring of 2019 which gathers his music made for film, including works created for films such as Wall-E, Natural Born Killers and Antoine de Caunes’ Les Morsures de l’Aube. His label Real World is still active, with new signings like the American-Irish band The Gloaming and the hypnotic indie-folk duo from Manchester, The Breath. And most of all, Peter Gabriel is still the militant activist, full of verve, as seen when he criticised Brexit and subsequent rises in populism last summer on Twitter. “Do we really want a white-breaded, ‘brexited’, flatland? A country that is losing its desire to accommodate people from around the world? Across the whole world we are seeing politicians gaining popularity by dividing us, feeding into fear and hatred. WOMAD, the world music festival that I founded with some friends in 1980, was established to celebrate the richness and magic of all our cultural differences and to demonstrate the stupidity of racism.
