2023 is already turning out to be a big year for Peter Gabriel. He’s announced a North American tour that starts in September (closest to Indy will be his Chicago show 9/30). In addition, Gabriel has a new album i/o that’s suppose to be released this year. From that, he’s shared his song, ‘Playing For Time’. It explores ‘time, mortality and memories’. At first, I didn’t like it. Too slow with a dream-like feel. But the more you listen to the melody and the lyrics, it grows on you. Almost reminds me of something that you’d hear in a movie as a character is reflecting. Take a listen and see what you think…
