In 2008, Peter Gabriel worked with Thomas Newman on the song Down to Earth, that features over the closing credits of the film WALL-E. Peter provided both vocals and lyrics.

The song received the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media. It was also nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Original Song and the Academy Award for Best Original Song.

The track also features the Soweto Gospel Choir and is available on the soundtrack album for the film.
