Feist - Peter Gabriel Readies Long-awaited Scratch My Back Follow-up

Feist and Joseph Arthur have completed the line-up for Peter Gabriel's long-awaited Scratch My Back follow-up after Radiohead and David Bowie backed out of the project.

The And I'll Scratch Yours album was to feature covers of Gabriel's songs recorded by the artists he paid tribute to on Scratch My Back.

The finally-completed end result features tracks like I Don't Remember, Shock The Monkey and Games Without Frontiers covered by David Byrne, Arthur and Arcade Fire, respectively.

Also taking part in the project: Brian Eno, Lou Reed, Bon Iver, the Magnetic Fields, Regina Spektor, Stephin Merritt, Elbow and Randy Newman.

The highlight of the new album will be Paul Simon's stirring rendition of Gabriel's human rights anthem Biko.
