Peter Gabriel has revealed the first new song from his forthcoming album I/O. Written and produced by Gabriel, “Panopticom” was recorded at Real World Studios in Wiltshire and The Beehive in London.

The song features contributions from familiar names such as bassist Tony Levin, drummer Manu Katché, and guitarist David Rhodes, as well as “electronics” from Brian Eno and backing vocals from the Breath’s Ríoghnach Connolly.

The first song is based on an idea I have been working on to initiate the creation of an infinitely expandable accessible data globe: the Panopticom. We are beginning to connect a like-minded group of people who might be able to bring this to life, to allow the world to see itself better and understand more of what’s really going on.

Panopticom is the first full track that Gabriel has shared from the long-teased album I/O, which has reportedly been in the works for 20 years.
