Peter Gabriel: I'm Amazing
on 17 June 2016
Peter Gabriel's new song "I'm Amazing" doesn't take cues from Kanye West, but the legendary boxer and political activist Muhammad Ali, who recently passed away at the age of 74. Gabriel writes in a Facebook post that it was "inspired by Muhammad Ali’s life and struggles and, at the time of his death, when so many people are celebrating his life and thinking about all he achieved, it seemed the right time to release it." The stunning production on the track (swelling prog-rock guitars duet with chanting women in another language towards the end) unexpectedly hits you like a KO.
