There’s a concept that Peter Gabriel intended on following; every time the moon is full and bright shining in the night sky, he will release a new song.
Since full moons occur once a month on average, music lovers should be able to anticipate when Peter Gabriel will release his next single. For this month of February, Gabriel released the song “The Court,” which had different elements interspersed into one, good track.
“It actually began with a Cuban loop that I was playing around with on my keyboard here,” Gabriel shared in his YouTube video discussing the new song. “That got me going. I’m an old drummer, so I still love to find a groove and then build some ideas around it. It was sort of a good crystalizing point for the band where we locked into something that sounded, to me, different from other stuff that I’d heard, and I think that’s why it’s here: to brighten up your February.”
Moreover, he explained about how the legal system is often abused, so he connected the lyrics to such. “A lot of life is a struggle between order and chaos and in some senses, the justice or legal system is something that we impose to try and bring some element of order to the chaos,” he added. “That’s often abused, it’s often unfair and discriminatory, but at the same time, it’s probably an essential part of a civilized society. But we do need to think sometimes about how that is actually realized and employed.”
