After leaving Genesis, Gabriel went on to a successful solo career.

Peter Gabriel is the second solo studio album by English singer-songwriter Peter Gabriel, released in 1978. The album is the second of four with the same title. Guitarist Robert Fripp served as producer, whose influence on the album is evident in the use of 'Frippertronics' on the track "Exposure". The album did not sell as well as the first Peter Gabriel, but reached No. 10 on the UK charts. Mother of Violence" was written by Peter and his first wife Jill Gabriel.
Peter Gabriel introduced his fifth studio album, So, with "Sledgehammer," an Otis Redding-inspired soul-pop raver that was easily his catchiest, happiest single to date.
The first of Peter’s studio albums to have a proper title So was a watershed release in his career. Its marriage of the artistic and the commercial made for an indisputable success, with the album quickly sitting atop the album charts on both sides of the Atlantic. Aside from some intriguing collaborations – with Laurie Anderson on This Is The Picture, Kate Bush on Don’t Give Up and Youssou N’Dour on In Your Eyes – it was the unity of singer, band and producer that made So such a crucial record in the Gabriel canon. There is always wisdom from hindsight. And because ‘So’ was my most successful record, I think that a lot of people, particularly in America, think that it was designed to be that. From the other end of it, you never really know which records are going to do well.
The album spawned a number of hits including 'Sledgehammer', 'Big Time', 'Don't Give Up' (a duet with Kate Bush) and 'In Your Eyes' which drove 'So' to multi-platinum worldwide sales and No. 1 in the UK and No. 2 in the US. 'So' was very much an album of the MTV generation and the distinctive videos for tracks like 'Sledgehammer', 'Red Rain', 'Big Time' and 'Don't Give Up' were key factors in the album's success
