Peter Gabriel is the fourth album released by the English rock musician Peter Gabriel in September 1982.  As with his previous three albums, it had no title other than Gabriel's name.

It is known by fans as Security or Peter Gabriel 4.

A German-language version of the album, entitled the Deutsches Album, was released later in 1982.

Co-produced by Peter and David Lord this is the first album where Peter really immersed himself in the music of distant lands and cultures.  It was also his first fully digital recording. These two elements created a deeply effective soldering-together of futurism and generations-old tradition.

The songs on the album cover a wide variety of subject matter.  The Rhythm of the Heat is based on Carl Jung’s experience while observing a group of African drummers. 

San Jacinto reflects on the fear and pain experienced by a Native American man who sees his culture overwhelmed by modern white society. 

Shock the Monkey, a meditation on jealousy, uses imagery of a primate to describe personal anxieties.

Wallflower is about the treatment of political prisoners in Latin America during the 1980s

The single Shock The Monkey became Peter’s first US top 30 hit on the Billboard Hot 100.

The album reached #6 on the UK charts and #28 on the US charts. 

This is a Limited Edition 180 Gram Heavyweight Vinyl 2LP release limited to 10,000 numbered copies worldwide. The album has been half-speed remastered and cut at 45RPM across two heavyweight LPs.  It also features a gatefold jacket with images from the original LP inner sleeve.  All images have been newly rescanned.  It also includes a download card with a choice of digital download (Hi-Res 24-bit / 96k or 16-bit / 44.1k).
