Peter Gabriel Posts New Track Love Can Heal

Thursday, 31 August 2023 Written by Jon Stickler

Peter Gabriel has released a new song called Love Can Heal.

Beautifully layered and atmospheric, it's the ninth single to be shared from the British art-rock artist's forthcoming album, 'i/o', which is still awaiting a release date.

Previously, Gabriel shared Olive TreeSo MuchRoad To Joy, Four Kinds Of Horses, The Court, Panopticam, Playing For Time, and the record's title track. He said:

"Love Can Heal was written around 2016 and I did start playing it midway through the tour and dedicated it to Jo Cox, who was the British MP brutally murdered by an extremist and someone that I had met at a leadership conference. I think the song fits right in to the themes of the album in the sense that 'i/o' is about feeling and being connected to everything and in a way, the next evolution of being connected to things is a feeling of love for everything…

"It sounds trite just to say "love can heal," but I really believe that it is a key element and that when people feel interaction, warmth, giving, part of something alive and not isolated, that they’re much more likely to do well and be able to offer more themselves. The music began with this meditative, repeated sequence, and the essence of all these sounds was trying to create a sensual palette.

"With the work that Hans-Martin Buff's been doing on the immersive mix too, you’re getting this sense of being touched in many places and it should be a place just to drift off into. That was my aim."

Gabriel has a North American tour scheduled for September and October. Head below for further details. Tickets are on sale.
