Phil Collins: Retirement Is Off!

Health and family issues were the reasons Phil Collins gave for retiring a few years ago, but now, after recovering at his Miami home from back surgery earlier this month, he says the retirement is off.

Spurred on by the work he did on the upcoming deluxe reissues of Face Value and Both Sides, Collins says it has been “rediscovering for me, as I’m hoping it’s gonna be rediscovering from an audience point of view.” Plus, he tells Rolling Stone that his two youngest children — 14-year-old Nicholas 14 and 10-year-old Matthew — “want to see what their dad does. They were in nappies when I was last on the road. They love my music and I’d like to take them out so they can enjoy it.”

He’s considering touring next year and starting work shortly on a new album, which would be his first of original material since 2002.

The Face Value and Both Sides reissues will be out on January 29th.
