Peter Gabriel’s cover album, Scratch My Back, came out in early 2010, and it featured Gabriel’s quite original remakes of songs by David Bowie, Lou Reed, David Byrne, Regina Spektor and other major artists. Now comes the follow-up: Set to be released on January 6, the new album, And I’ll Scratch Yours, flips the concept of the previous album. This time around, artists like Bon Iver, Arcade Fire, Lou Reed, Paul Simon and Feist record some of Peter Gabriel’s biggest hits — songs like “Games Without Frontiers,” “Mercy Street” and “Biko.” The albums can be purchased together here, but, happily, you can stream them online for free — but only for a a limited time — on NPR’s First Listen site. Enjoy.
