Come Talk To Me Version

Late in 2016 a cover version of Peter’s song Come Talk To Me, by the band Goldspot, featured in an episode of the US hit TV show This Is Us.

This Is Us (Music from the Series), a companion to the show is released on 15 September via UMe, and here Siddhartha Khosla of Goldspot talks about their version of the song.

“We were working on episode seven and episode eight concurrently. I was looking at a script for episode eight; it was the Thanksgiving episode, which is one of my favorite episodes all season. And so much of what was happening in episode eight was this issue between Rebecca and Randall, her adopted son, and that she never communicated certain things about his past to him. It was all about this lack of communication. It kept on coming to me in my head, I kept thinking about Peter Gabriel’s “Come Talk to Me.” And that record, [1992‘s] Us, is one of my favorite records of all time. It inspired me to do a cover of the song.”
