Peter Gabriel: The Court (Dark​-​Side Mix)

Peter Gabriel has released the second new single from his new album i/o. The Court has a dystopian feel, harking back to the sound of his third and fourth solo albums, when rhythm became the main force of his songs.

I had this idea for ‘the court will rise’ chorus, so it became a free-form, impressionistic lyric that connected to justice, but there’s a sense of urgency there. A lot of life is a struggle between order and chaos and in some senses the justice or legal system is something that we impose to try and bring some element of order to the chaos. That’s often abused, it’s often unfair and discriminatory but at the same time it’s probably an essential part of a civilised society. But we do need to think sometimes about how that is actually realised and employed.

The Court (Dark-Side Mix) is released via Real World Records.
