The track "Touched" received considerable amounts of airplay on local radio stations before capturing the attention of a mainstream audience, when it was featured in the Dana Brown surfing film Step into Liquid.
It also received exposure when it was played briefly in the trailer for the movie The Beach even though the song never made it to the actual soundtrack. NBC also used it as a promo song during TV show advertisements. After Visual Audio Sensory Theater , Elektra pressured Crosby to go back to the drawing board and craft an album that was accessible to more listeners, but still retaining the distinct sound of the last album.
The album featured a more rock-oriented sound, and benefited from major-label funding by allowing Crosby to work with the New Bombay Recording Orchestra in India. By the end of the album's recording process, Robertson had left VAST, and Crosby reluctantly moved forward with the band.
Music for People provided the band with MTV airplay through their lead single "Free"'s music video, with the single charting on the Billboard's Hot , and hitting No.
The band became a relative success after Music for People , but the album's poor sales and lack of a second charting single led to tension between Elektra and Crosby. In , Crosby recorded bundles of tracks that were titled Turquoise 3.
Crosby solidified his band's line-up during this time, and from then on, VAST became a four-person band. With the unusual method of distribution of these tracks by a band with a relatively large fanbase formerly signed to a major label, many record companies were outraged with the releases. As a result from pressure from his former label, Elektra, Crosby was forced to sign a short-term deal with Carson Daly -owned independent label Entertainment to release the best of both bundles as one album, titled Nude.
This release also had the most high-quality versions of the songs, as the online releases were only available via mp3. In later years, Crosby said the idea of releasing Nude on an indie label was a "nightmare" because "There were so many problems dealing with them Entertainment on every level. I feel we made a big mistake not believing in ourselves enough and doing it on our own. After a short tour for Nude , the band released 2blossoms's first release, A Complete Demonstration , which was a collection of early demo tracks during the Visual Audio sessions.
The album was a limited-edition piece and sold quickly due to popular demand. Originally it was only available through the 2blossoms website, but it was later released to retail stores. After multiple tours, VAST went back to the studio and recorded their first all-acoustic album, April. The release method for April was, once again, unorthodox.
In , Crosby released an online version of the acoustic album online with ten tracks. April was mostly recorded only by Crosby and an acoustic guitar , with minimal use of bass and drums. After the online release, Crosby said he was unhappy with it and went back to the studio to add four new tracks and a whole new track listing. The cover featured fan-made artwork, and the album received a traditional release in stores. November 25, 0.
