Peter Gabriel has hinted at a possible Genesis reunion.

The 64-year-old singer, who hasn't performed with the band since 1982, believes there's a ''small chance'' he could reform with the group as the frontman in the future.

Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine, he said: ''I never say never. It really didn't happen last time. I think there's a small chance, but I don't think it's very high.''

Meanwhile, Peter is currently working on first studio album of original songs since his 2002 record hit 'Up', but he admits the process has been slow as he gets ''distracted'' easily.

When asked how his album is going, he explained: ''Slowly, as it usually goes for me. I get distracted. But I have technology and a few benefit projects at the moment that keep me going. I'm itching to get back to more writing.''

Last week, the veteran singer was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Brooklyn, New York, and he believes receiving awards forces him to think back on his past.

He explained: ''Getting awards is nature's way of saying you're getting old, so you can get a little more reflective. There are very few good things about getting old except you care less about what people think.''
