When You’re Falling (feat. Peter Gabriel)

Afro Celt Sound System

‘When You’re Falling’ is taken from the Afro Celt Sound System album Volume 3: Further In Time.

Originally, Iarla Ó Lionáird intended to sing the song, but as it took shape it seemed more suited to a vocalists whose cross-cultural connections are well documented:

Peter Gabriel has been a great mentor and role model for me,” says Iarla. “Years ago I remember travelling in Ireland listening to his music, wondering if I’d ever get to meet people like him. I have been honoured to work with him in the past, but part of the magic of ‘When You’re Falling’ was that we didn’t meet— he just took the song and put his own turn on it.
