New Blood is the ninth studio album by the English rock musician Peter Gabriel, released on 10 October 2011. The album consists of orchestral re-recordings of various tracks from throughout Gabriel's career. The album continues the project Gabriel began with his previous album, Scratch My Back, which was orchestral covers of other artists' songs. The idea came about after rearranging Gabriel's songs for orchestra for the second half of shows on the Scratch My Back Tour of 2010.

Peter Gabriel puts a romantic relationship into biblical context on this track, which is about trying to work through a failing relationship by making love. The blood of Eden runs through woman and man, making it a natural, sensual act. Gabriel used the image of the Garden of Eden because it was a time when man and woman were in one body, a state they have been trying to get back to ever since. Sinead O'Connor, who also appears on the Us track "Come Talk To Me," sings on this with Gabriel. For his Secret World tour, which began in 1993, Paula Cole, who had yet to release her first album, took on the female vocals. Songs of this nature require tremendous sensitivity so as not to sound smarmy, but Gabriel could make that connection. He puts out content according to a lunar cycle," Cole told Songfacts. He's always embracing the feminine. More songs from Peter Gabriel.
Blood of Eden" is the third single from English rock musician Peter Gabriel's 1992 album Us, featuring backing vocals by Sinéad O'Connor. It narrowly failed to break the UK top 40. The single has two b-side tracks: A remix of "Mercy Street" (originally from Gabriel's previous studio album So, released in 1986) by William Orbit and an earlier version of the a-side. This version had originally appeared in the Wim Wenders film Until the End of the World (1991) but was not included on the official soundtrack. The song was performed on the 1994 Secret World tour.
