Rick returned with a new album, Keep It Turned On, in 2001, though it was not released in the UK or very widely at all.

In 2005, he released Portrait, which was able to be heard by UK fans, and was a series of jazz standards, albeit delivered in a more pop-inflected fashion.

However, in 2007, something happened which few would have expected: Rick became the focus of a strange internet meme.

This was called rickrolling, which is an internet prank created when an unsuspecting person receives an email with a link, often telling them it will take them to a particular page.
