Peter Gabriel Joins Sheryl Crow On Cover Of His ‘Digging In The Dirt’

Sheryl Crow recently released her cover version of Peter Gabriel‘s song “Digging in the Dirt.”

“Digging in the Dirt” is the latest single from Crow’s upcoming album, Evolution, which is set for release on March 29. Her cover of the song also features the original artist.

“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,” said the former Genesis lead singer.

“I think Sheryl and Mike Elizondo have done a brilliant job putting all this together. It deserves to grow wings,” he added, referring to Crow recording the album with producer Elizondo.

Speaking about selecting the song, 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 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,” she adds. “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.”
