More recent arrangements include Bat For Lashes and an extensive collaboration with Peter Gabriel resulting in two albums, "Scratch My Back" and "New Blood", the latter of which he co-produced with Gabriel. He was Gabriel's music director for all the live shows including appearances at New York's Radio City and the Hollywood Bowl. Metcalfe joined Vini Reilly in the Durutti Column in the mid-eighties. During this period, he also studied music at the Royal Northern College and the Hochschule in Berlin and was instrumental in the formation of the record label Factory Classical, an offshoot of Tony Wilson's Factory Records.
He released an album of his own, The Inner Line, to positive reviews. In 2004, another album, Scorching Bay, was released. The commercial success of Metcalfe’s first two albums of original music has led directly to several new commissions for TV and the concert hall. His most recent, "A Darker Sunset" was released on Big Chill records in 2008.
