I'll Scratch Yours is a concept album developed by Peter Gabriel, giving artists whom he covered in his 2010 album Scratch My Back a medium to release covers of Gabriel's songs, which was part of the original intent of the Scratch My Back idea.

It was reported[1] on a January 2010 Peter Gabriel podcast that Radiohead would be covering "Wallflower" from Gabriel's 4th self-titled album.

In March 2010, Gabriel announced that Lou Reed has covered "Solsbury Hill (song)" while Brian Eno, the co-writer of "Heroes", is covering "Don't Break This Rhythm". David Bowie has declined to record a Gabriel song.[2]

The first split single from the Scratch My Back album is "The Book of Love" — Gabriel's cover of a Magnetic Fields song, backed with "Not One of Us" — Stephin Merritt's (The Magnetic Fields' frontman) cover of a Peter Gabriel's song. It was released digitally on the day of January 2010's full moon, that is, on 30 January 2010.[3]
