Guy Garvey and Peter Gabriel in conversation

Peter Gabriel has made an exlusive version of his New Blood album available to Society of Sound members.

Continuing on from the orchestration of his previous album, Scratch My Back, this project features some of Gabriel’s biggest hits from his prodigious career, reconstructed and re-imagined with orchestral arrangements. Gabriel hand-selected  the songs and enlisted the help of close collaborator John Metcalfe for the arrangements and Ben Foster as conductor of the 46-piece hand-picked New Blood Orchestra.

Here Peter and Guy discuss Carl Jung, sneaking around Peter’s studio and how New Blood’s final track listing was decided.
