Peter Gabriel, Guy Garvey, John Metcalfe and Bob Ezrin talk about the recording of Mirrorball and Elbows reciprocal version of Mercy Street.
“We chose to cover Mercy Street because it’s such an amazing song, It’s my favourite from SO. Also because there’s a real tenderness and understanding in the lyrics. Before I knew anything about Anne Sexton or her poetry – the song is about and dedicated to her- I just knew that there was a real comfort to the song” Guy Garvey
“you never know quite what people are going to do with your tracks. With this one they’ve been fantastic people to work with, very easy, open and straight forward, and the music is stunning.” Peter Gabriel
