Recently, Peter Gabriel has been working with video game companies Cyan Worlds and Ubisoft to aid in the sound production of their latest video games. The 2003 videogame Uru: Ages Beyond Myst featured the song "Burn You Up, Burn You Down" in several portions of the game. The song, in a different mix, features the Blind Boys of Alabama (who also collaborated with Gabriel on the song "Sky Blue") and was on a press release copy of Up, but deleted before the album's actual release. Gabriel played on stage with Cat Stevens 33 years after having played on Stevens' Mona Bone Jakon album. The event happened in Johannesburg during Nelson Mandela's 46664 concert. The two British artists performed Stevens' old hit "Wild World". The 2004 release of Myst IV: Revelation (developed by Ubisoft Montreal) featured a song called "Curtains", originally a B-side from the single to "Big Time" from So. The song, slightly remixed from its original version, is also often called 'Portal to Serenia' or 'Portal to Dreamworld'. Gabriel also performs a large voice acting part in the game. Also in 2004, Gabriel performed a cover version of "The Book of Love," a song by The Magnetic Fields, on the soundtrack to the film Shall We Dance?. He compered and performed at the Eden Project Live 8 concert in July 2005. A DVD of this show has already been released. Peter Gabriel has two daughters from his first marriage to wife Jill: Melanie and Anna. Melanie was a backing vocalist during Gabriel's 2002 Growing Up tour, and Anna filmed a documentary of that same tour, called Growing Up On Tour: A Family Portrait, currently available on DVD. Gabriel and his second wife, Maebh, had a son, Isaac, in 2002. A new double DVD set, Peter Gabriel Live & Unwrapped, was released on October 24th, 2005. The next DVD release will be the concert film POV (Point Of View) - previously available on VHS. It is getting the full 5.1 remix treatment at the moment in his Realworld studios. FIFA, the international football governing body, asked Peter Gabriel and Brian Eno to organize an opening ceremony for the 2006 FIFA World Cup finals in Germany, planned to take place a couple of days before the actual start of the tournament's matches. The man who only recently became a fan of the game and European champions Liverpool was working on songs for the show in Berlin's Olympic Stadium, although the show was cancelled in January 2006 by FIFA due to going overbudget and supposed lack of interest, though the official explanation was potential damage to the pitch. Rumours of a possible reunion of the classic Genesis line-up have also been circulating, since Phil Collins stated in an interview that he is open to the idea of sitting back behind the drums and "let Peter be the singer." The classic line-up has only reformed for a live performance once before, in 1982. However, the group did work together to create a new version of an old Genesis song The Carpet Crawlers 1999 which was released on the Genesis Hits record. Supposedly the new version was very hard to put together. On December 1, 2005, Genesis issued a statement saying the band has no plans to perform and that for at least the next year the issue will not be revisited. Gabriel's song "Big Time" is the official theme song of World Wrestling Entertainment's WrestleMania 22. Gabriel performed John Lennon's "Imagine" at the Opening Ceremonies of the Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy on February 10, 2006. Cingular Wireless has aired commercials featuring Gabriel's "Solsbury Hill." Gabriel is currently recording a new studio album, which will be his first new album release since UP in 2002. The album is rumoured to be titled I/O and as of yet has no release date. Gabriel's song "Digging in the Dirt" is now being used for promotional videos for the new FX show starring Courteney Cox called "
