Ex-Stiltskin singer Ray Wilson was appointed as the new lead singer of Genesis. Other candidates had included Nick Van Eede from Cutting Crew, Kevin Gilbert, Paul Carrack from Rutherford's Mike + The Mechanics, Francis Dunnery (ex-It Bites), David Longdon (ex-Louis Philippe band) and ex-Marillion vocalist — and two-time Banks collaborator — Fish.[46]

On the band's criteria in the search for a singer, Banks noted: "We needed someone who fits as many of the things you require as possible — being able to improvise with the kind of music we write and also someone capable of jumping in at the deep end and fronting a band." Wilson was immediately incorporated into the songwriting process, being given "half-a-dozen" songs to work on and ending up with three co-writing credits on the final album.[47]
