In an interview with Rolling Stone, Peter Gabriel says he is working on new music.

“I’m focused on music, technology and benefit projects in pretty equal parts at the moment,” he told the magazine.

The 63-year-old took a year off from recording music in order to travel with his family. “I wanted to purely spend time with the family and have a sabbatical year. I meant to do that when I was fifty, so I was only thirteen years behind schedule,” he said.

So far, he has recorded close to twenty songs for the as-yet-untitled album. However, he does not have a timeline for when the album would be completed. “I’d rather just pick a month rather than a year. It’s safer that way,” he joked, adding that it will come in March (neglecting to attach a year to the “announcement”).

Gabriel was also pressed asked about Phil Collins’ recent announcement about a possible Genesis tour. Although he did not shoot it down, he is unsure when a reunion would take place. “It’s never been ruled out. I’m trying to picture a time when it would top my priorities list though,” he said.

Recently, Gabriel hosted the WITNESS 2013 Focus For Change Event, where he spoke to about the death of Nelson Mandela.

But it leaves an enormous hole. In many ways, he was a father figure to all those who have campaigned for the rights of others, or for justice.  I hope we see some other people emerge with his qualities, but I have my doubts.”
