Phil Collins announces huge new career-spanning box-set

Phil Collins is a straight-up hitmaker. Throughout his near fifty-year long career, he’s released some of music’s most iconic tracks. In The Air Tonight. Easy Lover. Another Day In Paradise… the list goes on.

This September, you’ll be able to relive it all, because Collins is releasing an absolutely mammoth new box-set, chronicling his iconic career.

Good news, Phil Collins fans! A huge new four-disc, 59-track box-set chronicling his iconic career is coming this September.

Titled Plays Well With Others, the new set will cover his early days in Flaming Youth, his time in the seventies spent with Brand X, and of course his wildly successful career in the eighties.

With a whopping 59 tracks, the set will span across four discs.

Some would say I’ve lived a charmed life. I’ve done what I wanted for most of it, and got paid well for doing something I’d have done for nothing,” Collins said in a press release.

Playing the drums. During that time I’ve played with most of my heroes, most have become close friends. Over these 4 CD’s you’ll find a mere smattering of those moments. I thank the artists for letting me put this CD together, no easy task!”
