Phil Collins

[lastfm]Phil Collins[/lastfm] will be dropping his new album on September 28, 2010.  Collins latest album will  feature a soulful sound with songs from both Motown and Stax Records labels.

It shouldn’t really be a surprise to anyone that I’ve finally made an album of my favourite Motown songs. These songs, along with a couple of [lastfm]Dusty Springfield[/lastfm] tracks, a [lastfm]Phil Spector[/lastfm]/[lastfm]Ronettes[/lastfm] tune, and one by the Impressions, make up the tapestry, the backdrop, of my teenage years.

I remember it as if it was yesterday, going to the Marquee Club in London’s Soho and watching [lastfm]The Who[/lastfm], [lastfm]The Action[/lastfm], and many others, playing these songs. In turn I’d go out the next day to buy the original versions.

Collins underwent surgery in 2009 to correct a dislocated vertebrae in his neck which left him unable to play the drums or piano.  He taped drum sticks to his hands to play.  However Collins  keeps a positive outlook on both his set backs and his music. He made the following statement about the joy he experienced making  the new album.

There was one moment when they were tracking ([lastfm]Martha Reeves & The Vandellas[/lastfm] hit) Heat Wave that I experienced a wave of happiness and wonder that this was actually happening to me.

Other tracks include: [lastfm]Temptations[/lastfm], Girl, [lastfm]Stevie Wonder’s [/lastfm]Uptight and the [lastfm]Four Tops'[/lastfm] Standing In The Shadows Of Love and Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever.
