Phil Collins is one of the most famous English drummers.

He recorded the free In the Air Tonight piano sheets in 1980 and released it as a single and part of his album named Face Value, in January 1981.

The song was the debut solo single of Phil Collins and it was released as the lead single of his album, and as an experimental pop and soft rock music genre song.

In the Air Tonight was written by Phil Collins and co-produced together with Hugh Padgham.

It has a length of 5:34 minutes in the album version and 4:59 in the single edit and it has the song The Roof Is Leaking on its B-side.

In the Air Tonight is famous for its use of the gated reverb drum sound, which fits perfectly with Collins’ voice.

When asked about the meaning of the song, Collins said that he doesn’t know exactly what the song is about, but "there's a lot of anger, a lot of despair and a lot of frustration", as it was composed after his first divorce.

Once released, the free In the Air Tonight piano sheet music encountered such a success, as it is often considered Collin’s signature song.

The song reached number one in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and Sweden and the top ten in Australia and New Zealand.

It was later certified Gold by the RIAA and sold over 500,000 copies.

The song has also an accompanying music video, released in the same year as the song.

The music video was directed by Stuart Orme and was launched through MTV in August 1981.
