Phil Collins Singles Collection Coming

Share This:

Phil+Collins+SinglesThe recent Phil Collins “Take A Look At Me Now” retrospective campaign has inspired a re-evaluation of the multi-platinum artist’s back catalog as several of his albums returned to the charts. Now Collins turns his attention to the biggest tracks throughout his career with the release of The Singles collection on October 14.

The set charts Collins’ entire solo career from his smash hit 1981 debut “In The Air Tonight” to the title track from his most recent studio album, 2010’s Going Back. It encompasses seven U.S. #1s for Atlantic Records (“Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now),” “Sussudio,” “One More Night,” “Separate Lives,” “A Groovy Kind of Love,” “Two Hearts” and “Another Day In Paradise”) plus a seven Top 10 hits (“You Can’t Hurry Love,” “Easy Lover” with Philip Bailey, “Don’t Lose My Number,” “Take Me Home,” “I Wish It Would Rain Down,” “Something Happened On The Way To Heaven” and “Do You Remember?”).

It also includes numerous other highlights such as his first Grammy®-nominated single “I Don’t Care Anymore,” “You’ll Be In My Heart” which won an Oscar® for Best Original Song in the Disney film Tarzan, and numerous songs which became staples of his live shows.

As with the “Take A Look At Me Now” campaign, the album mastering process has been overseen by Nick Davis who earned a Grammy nomination for Best Surround Sound album for his work on the Genesis 1970-1975 box set. Davis has also worked on all of the Genesis retrospective reissues.

The Singles will be available on three formats. The 3-CD Deluxe Edition compiles his 45 hit singles from all over the world in chronological order for the first time, while the 2-CD/4-LP boxed set contains the 33 key tracks from his career. Both editions will also be available digitally.

The collection coincides with the release of Collins’ autobiography Not Dead Yet: The Memoir which covers his beginnings as a child actor to his domination of the charts both as a solo artist and part of Genesis.
