Phil Collins, the English soft-rocker who was one of the most successful artists of the 1980s, says he is
coming out of retirement with an upcoming album and tour.
The former Genesis singer and drummer, who has not released an album of new material since 2002, said
in an interview published Wednesday that he is installing a studio in his home in Miami and will begin work
on a new album in about a month.
“I’m no longer officially retired,” he told Rolling Stone magazine.
“The horse is out of the stable and I’m raring to go,” he said.
Collins, 64, announced his retirement in 2011 but is planning to return to the stage on December 12th in
a previously announced charity concert in Miami Beach.
Collins will also begin re-issues of his back catalog starting in November.
