Peter Gabriel Working on WALL-E Soundtrack

Singer spills a couple of beans about Pixar's latest.

In the past, Pixar has demonstrated an ability to score with kids and parents alike — but its next release, WALL-E, looks like it might be their ticket in with the elusive “aging prog nerd” demographic.

Cinemablend reports (from the musician’s latest videoblog) that former Genesis vocalist and multiplatinum solo artist Peter Gabriel is working on the WALL-E soundtrack. According to Cinemablend‘s report, Gabriel wasn’t entirely specific about the exact nature of his involvement (he “describes his contribution as creating one or two new things, as well as putting some glue on things he’s done before”), but he did reveal that he was initially approached about the gig in 2005 — and shed a little light on the film itself:

We know from the trailers that the movie centers around a small robot who was left behind on Earth to clean up garbage after mankind moved to the stars. The environmentally conscious musician says that Pixar consulted with NASA and, based on descriptions of bone deterioration in space, humans are being made to look like “flat blobs in armchairs.”

Gabriel’s no stranger to animation — his groundbreaking videos for ’80s hits such as “Sledgehammer” and “Big Time” made heavy use of the stuff — but that isn’t going to make it any easier to explain to your kid why there’s a guy in a Lamb Lies Down on Broadway t-shirt sitting next to you at the theater, or why WALL-E isn’t scampering around to the delightful strains of new music from Randy Newman. But hey, anything is better than Rascal Flatts covering “Life Is a Highway,” right? To see Gabriel’s videoblog, click on the second link below!
