Peter Gabriel Releases Remixed Version of ‘So’ Outtake
Peter Gabriel’s landmark album ‘So’ reached its 25 anniversary a couple of years ago, when fans were treated to a deluxe reissue. Among the bonus tracks on that release was a demo of a previously unreleased song called ‘Courage.’ But Gabriel isn’t done with it yet: He recently remixed the song for a brand new single.
The new version was produced by Tchad Blake and features new backing tracks added by Gabriel and guitarist David Rhodes, making it a more complete vision of the song than the one found on the ‘So’ reissue two years ago.
“When ‘So’ drew to a close, I didn’t feel the song was delivering in the way I had hoped, so decided not to include it,” Gabriel wrote on his website. “When we were reviewing all the material from that time, we wanted to take a fresh look at it and get it finished. I always liked the track and very much enjoyed the playing on it, especially the energy of the drums.”
You can listen to the new version of ‘Courage,’ which is available for download, below.
