Legendary musician Peter Gabriel has just released a new song, "I'm Amazing," inspired by the life of Muhammad Ali. In a press announcement, Gabriel — long the leader of the band Genesis, as well as a massively influential solo artist — wrote:

"I wrote a song a few years back — 'I'm Amazing,' which was, in part, inspired by Muhammad Ali's life and struggles. And at the time of his death, when so many people are celebrating his life and thinking about all he achieved, it seemed the right time to release it."
