Peter Gabriel, ‘In Your Eyes’ (DNA Version) – Song Premiere
Peter Gabriel will celebrate the 25th anniversary of his ‘So’ album with the worldwide release of a deluxe box set, available on Monday (Oct. 22). In addition to the entire album (remastered) and two discs worth of live music from a previously unreleased 1987 Athens concert, fans will find a disc with DNA versions of each track. Listen to the DNA version of ‘In Your Eyes’ below in this Ultimate Classic Rock exclusive.
Fans get to hear the evolution of the songwriting of ‘In Your Eyes’ during this 10-minute long track. It begins with a reggae beat, but eventually transforms into a song that includes the soaring chorus popular today.
The ‘So’ 25th Anniversary Immersion Box Set also includes two bonus DVDs of live footage from the concert, and the album — now re-sequenced to reflect Gabriel’s original vision — on 180-gram vinyl. Lesser versions of the box set are also available. Fans can pre-order now at Amazon.
Gabriel released ‘So’ in 1986 and it quickly became an international hit. The biggest hit was ‘Sledgehammer,’ but songs like ‘Red Rain’ and ‘Don’t Give Up’ are equally strong examples of Gabriel’s talent.
