And I'll Scratch Yours
Not yet reviewed.
And I'll Scratch Yours is the companion piece to the album Scratch My Back released in 2010. At the time of the release of Scratch My Back Peter Gabriel said; "Rather than make a traditional covers record, I thought it would be much more fun to create a new type of project in which artists communicated with each other and swapped a song for a song, i.e. you do one of mine and I’ll do one of yours, hence the title - Scratch My Back - And I’ll Scratch Yours. Although, at first, I hoped to have the companion record out at the same time, it became clear it would take a while longer pulling in the second record with all the other artists. This will come later".
It’s three years later, but that record, And I'll Scratch Yours is now ready for release.
All but two of the artists covered by Gabriel on the Scratch album are present in this new release with those two absentees being replaced by Feist and Joseph Arthur. Though the cover versions on Scratch were all arranged for an orchestra, no such parameters were placed on the song-swap, making And I'll Scratch Yours a fascinatingly diverse record.
