New Blood is the ninth studio album by the English rock musician Peter Gabrielreleased on 10 October The album consists of orchestral re-recordings of various tracks from throughout Gabriel's career.
The album continues the project Gabriel began with his previous album, Scratch My Backwhich was orchestral covers of other artists' songs. The idea came about after rearranging Gabriel's songs for orchestra for the second half of shows on the Scratch My Back Tour of For this album Gabriel continued to work with arranger John Metcalfe. He originally planned to rerecord the songs with home-made instrumentsbut did not find the range and tone of expression available in existing instruments.
In the end it worked. The album features a new song, "A Quiet Moment", which originated in his desire to separate " Solsbury Hill " — remade due to huge demand — from the rest of the album. Originally three minutes of silence were to separate "Solsbury Hill", but it was thought this would confuse people, and Gabriel decided that "A Quiet Moment" would work better.
In The IndependentAndy Gill gave the album three stars out of five and commented, "The prevailing tones are of awed wonder — the aspirant nobility of Downside Upthe dancing woodwind of San Jacinto and In Your Eyes Gravity Dub - Ipman - Depatterning (Vinyl, Album) or expectant The Rhythm Of The Heat - Peter Gabriel - Peter Gabriel , most notably in the emotional storm-surges of Red Rain and The Rhythm of the Heat.
Writing for the Evening StandardPete Clark awarded the album four stars out of five and stated, "In typical Gabriel fashion obvious choices have been avoided: no Sledgehammer or Biko here. Mostly, it is a great success. Good for an open-topped car ride across the Yorkshire Dales while you're playing hide and seek with the sun. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Peter Gabriel.
