Peter Gabriel Going to 'Cape Cod' With Vampire Weekend

by John D. Luerssen,

Vampire Weekend have more buzz than they can shake a stick at. After name-checking one of their influences -- Peter Gabriel -- in their tune 'Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa,' the former Genesis frontman has revealed possible plans to cover the song.

"I actually do like that song a lot and they've asked me to sing a version of it now, which I may well do," Gabriel told BBC6 earlier this month. The 'Sledgehammer' singer met the members of Vampire Weekend recently after he was introduced by someone from the band's label, XL.

But Gabriel said that if he moves forward with his own rendition, he may need to alter the lyric, "But this feels unnatural/Peter Gabriel, too."

"I haven't quite worked that out whether I should be doing that or substituting it with a name that might be appropriate to me. I think playing with yourself makes you go blind after a while," he joked.
