Remember when Peter Gabriel covered a bunch of contemporary bands for 2010's Scratch My Back? Well, now those contemporary bands are paying him back with a collaborative record adorably called And I'll Scratch Yours (aww!). Gabriel covered Arcade Fire's "My Body is a Cage," so in return they recorded this version of "Games Without Frontiers," from his self-titled 1980 record. It's a great cover - and it sounds so natural, it'll make you realize the profound influence Gabriel's music has had on that of Arcade Fire; listen to those big drums, eerie guitar sounds and distortion, and synthesized background drones. Remember, you can pick up a physical copy of the full compilation on September 23.
