Okay chit-chat music meisters, I need some help identifying a song.

I was in the queue waiting to pay for my petrol when this song came on. My phone was in the car so couldn't 'Shazam' it so I'm hoping someone can help, based on the following limited information.

1.  Vocalist sounded like Peter Gabriel
2.  The track had a quasi-religious, 'chant' feel to it, though it was definitely a pop song
3.  Couldn't decipher any of the lyrics except the phrase 'yay-yay-yay-oh' was repeated often throughout
4.  It wasn't 'Biko'!

Any help gratefully received as I liked it.

It doesn't exactly fit but it's getting loads of airtime.

I think I've heard it before somewhere so likely to have been out for a few years at least.

Not Labi Siffre

Return to innocence - Enigma
Report Ibrahima Sonko August 25, 2016 6:50 PM BST
This one fits the description but it has a female voice and is a dance tune.

Could it be Elbow? Guy Garvey has been compared to Peter Gabriel as a vocalist.

Across The River by Peter Gabriel fits the description but is a bit obscure to be played in a petrol station.

Peter Gabriel has a new single out. It does have some yah-ohs at the end.

Sorry - but it's 'no's all round.

It was fairly upbeat / quick tempo (or quicker tempo than Return To Innocence)

Thanks for all your help - it may have to remain an Enigma (Christ, I am so 'next level' it hurts)
