"Thom wanted to do a version of 'Wallflower,' which I'm very curious to hear," Gabriel revealed in a podcast on his official website. "I think that was an important track for him when he was 14."
Gabriel supposedly wrote the song after he was inspired by an Amnesty International pamphlet about that he read prior to England's invasion of the Falkland Islands. According to Radiohead fan site AtEaseWeb.com, there is no word yet on when the song might see the light of day.
For 'Scratch My Back,' which is out now, Gabriel takes on Radiohead's 1994 single 'Street Spirit (Fade Out).' The album also counts covers of songs by Regina Spektor, Arcade Fire and David Bowie, among others.
In related news, Radiohead's Sunday night performance at the Henry Fonda Theatre in L.A. raised over $500,000 in aid for survivors of Haiti's devastating earthquake. The band is currently at work on the follow up to 'In Rainbows.'
