  • Peter Gabriel Releases New Song “Love Can Heal (Bright-Side Mix)”

  • British singer-songwriter Peter Gabriel released a new song “Love Can Heal (Bright-Side Mix)” on August 31, 2023.

    The song is ninth single off of his upcoming tenth studio album “i/o”, which is out in 2023.
    The track was written and produced by Peter Gabriel.
    Peter Gabriel said of the song, “Love Can Heal was written around 2016 and I did start playing it midway through the tour and dedicated it to Jo Cox, who was the British MP brutally murdered by an extremist and someone that I had met at a leadership conference. I think the song fits right in to the themes of the album in the sense that i/o is about feeling and being connected to everything and in a way, the next evolution of being connected to things is a feeling of love for everything...”
    He continued, “... it sounds trite just to say 'love can heal', but I really believe that it is a key element and that when people feel interaction, warmth, giving, part of something alive and not isolated, that they're much more likely to do well and be able to offer more themselves. The music began with this meditative, repeated sequence and the essence of all these sounds was trying to create a sensual palette.”
    He added, “With the work that Hans-Martin Buff's been doing on the immersive mix too, you're getting this sense of being touched in many places and it should be a place just to drift off into. That was my aim.”

    The song accompanied by artwork from the artist Antony Micallef and his painting “a small painting of what I think love looks like”.
    Peter Gabriel said, “Antony Micallef is a stunning painter. I'd seen some of his portraits and they are with thick layers of paint, so there were references to Auerbach and Bacon for me, just very physical, very powerful and I just fell in love. Those paintings, in some ways, are more brutal, but this one is so tender and I think Antony manages to capture a lot of that intimate tenderness around love that is very hard to put into pictures. I was delighted when he was happy to be part of this.”

  • The accompanying animated music video was created by Aardman Animations Ltd 2023.
    Peter Gabriel said of the video, “Obviously I worked quite a lot with Aardman in the past and Antony loved their work, so we talked to them, not sure if this was something that they might want to do or not, and they did a beautiful job. Very simple, but very strong and I'm very pleased with it.”
    Antony Micallef added, “I was listening to a few of the songs and it's interesting because it's like putting on clothes and going 'oh, this suits me' or 'that doesn't suit me.' With Love Can Heal I could see my images coming up when I was hearing it so you begin to home-in and that's how it starts. I love artists who take risks and Peter's always chopped and changed and I like to do that too with my work and you know it doesn't just rest on this one thing. Working with Aardman was amazing. I love processes, especially in other mediums and so I found the mechanics of how this stuff comes together really interesting.”
