David Byrne, Paul Simon, Lou Reed, Arcade Fire and More Featured on Peter Gabriel Tribute

Back in 2010, Peter Gabriel released a tribute album called Scratch My Back, which featured covers of David Bowie, The Talking Heads, Neil Young, Arcade Fire, Lou Reed, Radiohead, Paul Simon, Bon Iver and more. Now, many of those artists have come together to return to favor on the forthcoming (and appropriately titled) album And I’ll Scratch Yours.

And I’ll Scratch Yours features covers of some of Peter Gabriel’s biggest hits from David Byrne, Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, Paul Simon, Brian Eno, Randy Newman, Lou Reed and Feist, among others. The album is set for release on September 23 via Real World, and fans will be able to purchase its predecessor in a Scratch My Back/And I’ll Scratch Yours package. The album can be pre-ordered now for $14.28.

Didn’t Paul Simon play in South Africa during Apartheid? Interesting that he chose Biko to cover.

Perhaps if you caught Paul Simon’s Doc “Under African Skies” you’d understand why ‘Biko’ was a perfect choice for this upcoming tribute album!

Perhaps if you spoke to Los Lobos, you’d understand why Paul Simon is a fucking little schmuck:’-WITH-STEVE-BERLIN

@ Bluedevil. I was thinking the same thing.

I’ll take Paul Simon’s word over almost anyone’s any day of the week. The guy has 6 decades as an amazing songwriter. This Los Lobos thing is the only issue I’ve ever heard regarding Paul Simon and songwriting credit. Millions of albums, multiple Grammy’s, and a career that has seen hit albums in every decade from the 60’s on leads me to believe that doesn’t need to steal music from anybody.
