Peter Gabriel is the third album by British rock musician Peter Gabriel, released in May 1980. The album has been acclaimed as Gabriel's artistic breakthrough as a solo artist and for establishing him as one of rock's most ambitious, innovative musicians.

This album is often referred to as Melt owing to its cover photograph by Hipgnosis, which was taken with a Polaroid SX-70 instant camera.  The melting effect was created by getting the colours to run by squashing the photo.

Recorded both at his home studio at Ashcombe House, near Bath, and at London’s Townhouse Studios, Peter’s third self-titled album was produced by Steve Lillywhite.

The album saw Peter change his writing style; now the rhythm came before the melody and the songs were built up on top of the rhythmic sequences.

The album delivered a Top 5 UK single in Games Without Frontiers, an anti-war song, and Peter’s first overtly political song in the shape of totemic closer Bikohis anti-apartheid protest song which remembered the murdered activist Steve Biko.

The album also features notable contributions from Kate Bush, Paul Weller, Phil Collins and David Rhodes.

The album reached #1 on the UK charts and #22 on the Billboard Hot 100. 

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).
