Three years after the extraordinary success of their debut album Simple Things, Zero 7 released their lush, powerful second album, When It Falls, in March 2004. It is a warm and absorbing work, which takes the orchestral elegance of their debut and rockets it into emotive new territory. The album is also influenced by the band's extensive touring, which provided new experiences and an opportunity to try out new songs that would become the backbone of When It Falls. Album track and second single 'Somersault' has recently become the 100 millionth download sold by Apple's iTunes Music Store since its launch in the US in May last year. When It Falls also includes the first single 'Home' and recent download single 'In Time'.
