When Genesis begin work on their fifth album, The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway, in 1974, the group is on the verge of a shake-up. The record causes strife among the musicians, two camps form - until singer Peter Gabriel finally quits.

Early in the creative process, Genesis determine that The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway will be a double album, only the story is yet to be written. Rutherford proposes an idea inspired by The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, but Gabriel vetoes it. The reasoning: the concept is too "cute." Instead, he presents his colleagues with an idea of ​​his own, which he eventually manages to convince them of. That's why the album now tells the story of Rael, a New York teenager of Puerto Rican descent, who goes on a trip of self-discovery and experiences exciting things.
