Digging in the Dirt

Sheryl Crow has just released her cover version of Peter’s song ‘Digging in the Dirt’.

‘I was delighted when Sheryl Crow told me she was going to do her own version of Digging In The Dirt. It sounds great – and was a real pleasure to sing along to.

I think Sheryl and Mike Elizondo have done a brilliant job putting all this together. It deserves to grow wings.’ -pg

Of the song, Sheryl Crow says; “Peter’s song is the one that started me on this whole process of making my new album Evolution, the first song I brought to (album producer) Mike Elizondo. The idea of self-examination to understand our wounds and flaws and how they affect our daily lives really resonated with me, because that process can lead to self-healing. But it can be messy, it feels like digging in the dirt. Peter’s lyrics express that so beautifully, with this just ridiculous groove driving underneath. When he agreed to sing on my cover of “Digging In The Dirt,” it just blew me away, and ironically it ended up being the last song we finished for the album. It’s such an honor to have him perform on this song which really means so much to me, and there is nobody in the world who sings like Peter Gabriel.”

‘Evolution’ is released on 29 March, 2024.
