Microphone is the first song from Rock ‘n’ Roll Circus which was leaked online and was chosen as the leading song for this album. Furthermore it was also the first promotional video which was aired on television. It is neatly blended in with Sexy Little Things, where the final scene is re-winded and re-utilised as the introduction for Microphone.

The setting is largely modified from minimalistic to gothic. Nonetheless the heavy usage of black and white is ever-present. It was filmed in the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London. The video highlights themes of repression, concealment, control and the notion of being true to yourself.

Although these shows’ biggest market is in the states, DVD releases and international syndications are definitely something that many producers pride in.
