Their #1 hit singles include "Precious Declaration", "Listen," and "Heavy." Other charting singles for the band include "Shine", "December", "Gel", "Smashing Young Man", "The World I Know", "Run", "Why, Part 2", "Vent", "Staring Down", "You", and "Perfect Day", a duet with Elton John.
Collective Soul has produced 9 studio albums with a 10th album scheduled for release in March or April 2018. A new live album is being released featuring recordings from 2016 and 2017 tours.
Their top 40 hits "Hollywood" became the theme song for the TV show "American Idol." Season 7 winner David Cook released a cover of Collective Soul's "The World I Know" taking it to #14 on the Billboard chart.
The band's name is taken from a phrase in the Russian novel "Fountainhead" by Ayn Rand, although they say they just like the name and it has nothing to do with the philosophy of the book.
