Track Of The Day: Peter Gabriel - 'The Veil'

Following a three year silence, Peter Gabriel returned a few months ago with 'I'm Amazing', a superb tribute to the late Muhammed Ali. A few months down the line and he's back again with another on-form new track. 'The Veil' was inspired by whistleblower Edward Snowden, and was written exclusively for the soundtrack of Oliver Stone's new movie 'Snowden'. In fact, the video for 'The Veil' even features a cameo by Snowden himself, who is seen walking through the woods and gazing at his computer monitor. The song is out now on all digital download and streaming services.

"As we become so visible in the digital world and leave an endless trail of data behind us, exactly who has our data and what they do with it becomes increasingly important," Gabriel said in a statement. "Snowden's revelations shocked the world and made it very clear why we need to have some way to look over those who look over us. With increasing terrorist attacks, security is critical, but not without any accountability or oversight."
