"Blood of Eden" is the third single from Peter Gabriel's 1992 album, Us, featuring backing vocals by Sinéad O'Connor. It narrowly failed to break the UK top 40.

The single has two b-side tracks: A remix of "Mercy Street" (originally from Gabriel's previous studio album So, released in 1986) by William Orbit and an earlier version of the a-side. This version had originally appeared in the Wim Wenders film Until the End of the World (1991) but was not included on the official soundtrack.
