New Blood is the ninth studio album by the English rock musician Peter Gabriel, released in October 2011 via Real World Records.

New Blood is a continuation of the project Peter Gabriel began with his album, Scratch My Back, which was orchestral covers of other artists' songs. The idea for the album came about after work was done re-arranging Gabriel's songs for orchestra for the second half of shows during the Scratch My Back Tour of 2010.

For this album Gabriel continues to work with arranger John Metcalfe. For New BloodPeter Gabriel selected songs which he felt would make for an interesting journey, instead of simply recording a greatest hits album with an orchestra.

The album also has a new Gabriel song, "A Quiet Moment", which was composed to separate "Solsbury Hill" from the rest of the album. Originally Gabriel had planned to have three minutes of silence separating the track, but as it was thought that this would confuse audiences, Gabriel decided that "A Quiet Moment" would work better.

New Blood was recorded at Real World Studios, and was produced by Peter Gabriel and John Metcalfe, using a full orchestra and no drum kit or guitar keeping with the theme of Scratch My Back

Justin Gerber of Consequence of Sound wrote:

"The altered instrumentation never interferes with the tracks but instead enhances. Rather than putting out money-grabbing greatest hits albums every five years, other artists should aspire to do what Gabriel has done here on New Blood." 

Check out a couple of tracks from the album:   Downside Up, Wallflower, Red Rain and Solsbury Hill.

This Double LP Vinyl Record on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl includes a bonus 7" Picture Disc Single of "Solsbury Hill", a high quality digital download code for the album, is housed in a gatefold sleeve, and was pressed in the EU.
