After drumming with Genesis for over a decade, and singing lead vocals following the departure of Peter Gabriel, Face Value was Collins’ – global smash – solo debut. The album was originally released in 1981, taking a more personal departure from his prog-rock past, it shot straight to No 1 in the UK when it was first released, and climbed to the Top 10 of charts around the world.   

Altogether, Face Value sold more than 10 million copies and confirmed Collins' place among the all-time music greats with the help of  hit singles, "I Missed Again,“ “If Leaving Me Is Easy,” “Behind The Lines” and the worldwide No 1 smash/air-drumming sensation, "In the Air Tonight."
