The band release the single Trick of the Tail, their first single featuring Collins, and the first to have an accompanying video. Banks wrote the majority of the song in 1972 and it was originally intended for Foxtrot. The lyrics are inspired by the book The Inheritors by William Golding. The video features the band playing around a piano, and appearing in miniature inside the piano. Collins:
Trick of the Tail is probably the most embarrassing video I have ever been in. It was a very small me running up and down a piano. You know when you look back and think, ‘Who told me to do that? whose lapse of taste was that? Was it mine?’ I think it was a mixture of me and the director…and the other guys. Everyone must be blamed.
The band release the video for Ripples from Trick of the Tail. Hackett:
We never did actually perform Ripples live whilst I was in the band. Ripples I thought was one of the best tracks on Trick of The Tail. I thought it had something interesting about it. Mainly, for the guitar combinations to be honest. The 12-string work, from Mike (Rutherford) and myself, and the thing that sounds like a backwards guitar solo which was played forwards but was a sign of things to come.
The band releases the video of Robbery, Assault & Battery, from the album A Trick of The Tail. This is the first promotional video the band has made. Collins:
It was actually quite good fun.
The band release Follow You, Follow Me, from the album …And Then There Were Three. The music is written by Banks, Collins and Rutherford, with lyrics by Rutherford. Collins has described the song as a great rhythm track and claims it was not intended to be a hit single. Banks:
It was our only truly group-written number. Mike played the riff, then I started playing a chord sequence and melody line on it, which Phil then centralized around. It worked so well as a very simple thing; it was enough as it stood. I’d just written a simple love lyric for Many Too Many, and I think Mike was keen to try the same thing. Maybe Follow You Follow Me was almost too banal, but I got used to it. I think we find it much easier to write long stories than simple love songs.
Lee Roth releases the music video for Californa Girls. The video features a variety of models who represent the different states.

Alana and Danielle:
(The song) is kind of up to you what it’s about. We wrote it around the time we got signed. We spent so long trying to get signed … and when we finally did there was all of this pressure and it was kind of like well is it or is it not?
The group sings on the artist’s track, LVL. The track is featured on his album, LONG.LIVE.A$AP.
We sang at the very end. (All begin singing ‘All you need is love’) That story was crazy because we met A$AP at a festival like a year ago.

Este on the bass lines in the song:
If I Could Change Your Mind was a challenge for me because it’s all fast 16th notes. Trying to make it funky without a pick was a little difficult. That and Falling are the two funkiest songs on the record. Writing those bass lines was really, really fun.

I think each song has its own story. I don’t think there was an overarching feeling for the record. I think the overarching theme was to make it sound like a band. But the feeling really does go from song to song.
The band release the official video for Forever In Your Debt, from their album Cavalcade. Aaron Starkie:
The song started with Jim’s bass. It has quite a good groove. It’s been one of our most successful singles. It’s had a lot of success overseas, particularly in Italy…It’s about finding hope through being in love with someone despite facing life’s difficulties.

Aaliya’s family is trying to halt Lifetime from making an Aaliyah biopic, saying that the outfit is too small to capture the scope of her life. They want a big studio to produce the film. The family is consulting with a lawyer to forfeit Lifetime from using any of Aaliyah’s music, photos and videos. Aaliyah’s cousin, Jomo Hankerson:
The problem that we have is that Aaliyah was an icon and she deserves an iconic tribute, not a Lifetime movie. They didn’t reach out. I don’t know why they didn’t reach out. We want a major studio release along the lines of What’s Love Got to Do with It, the Tina Turner movie. This needs A-list actors, A-list talent that can breathe life into what we think is a phenomenal story.
Jonas releases the first single off of his debut album as a solo artist. The song is given to Jonas by his label, Island Records:
So Chains I actually did not write. The way it worked was that I had about three or four songs ready for the record, so I sort of got the template of what I wanted it to sound like and then my new home Island Records said, “Hey we have this song that fits kind of with what you’ve been doing.” So I took it, made it my own a bit and immediately found a connection to it because I think for me it sort of took on a greater meaning of not letting things in your life hold you back from being exactly who you need to be and what’s important to you. So I connected with it in a major way.
