Listen to Peter Gabriel’s New Song ‘The Veil’
On September 16, Oliver Stone’s new film ‘Snowden’ hits U.S. theaters.
Peter Gabriel has now shared a new song, ‘The Veil’, made for the biopic about notorious NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden (portrayed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt). Listen to it on BBC Radio 6 Music here.
Edward Snowden, who is currently living in exile, was featured on a track on Jean-Michel Jarre’s latest record ‘Electronica 2: The Heart of Noise’.
Read Gabriel’s statement about the track:
“As we become so visible in the digital world and leave an endless trail of data behind us, exactly who has our data and what they do with it becomes increasingly important.
Snowden’s revelations shocked the world and made it very clear why we need to have some way to look over those who look over us. With increasing terrorist attacks, security is critical, but not without any accountability or oversight.
I was very happy to learn Oliver Stone had decided to make a film about Edward Snowden and believe this is a powerful and inspiring film.
Oliver takes his music very seriously and I have always enjoyed collaborating with him and [music supervisor] Budd Carr”.
