Genesis Revisited, called Watcher of the Skies: Genesis Revisited in the US, was a project put together by Steve Hackett to pay tribute to his former band Genesis. It features songs originally released by Genesis during Hackett's tenure with the group (1971–77). The track, "Déjà Vu", was co-written with Peter Gabriel in 1973 during the Selling England by the Pound sessions but not finished and Hackett completed the song for this album. "Waiting Room Only" is a complete reworking of "The Waiting Room," an instrumental from 1974's The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. There is also a completely new Hackett song: "Valley of the Kings."
