Phil Collins confirms he is working with Adele on new material

It’s been revealed that Adele is working alongside Genesis frontman Phil Collins on some new material and it’s been almost three years since we’ve had new songs from Adele.

The big question is who are they writing for? Is it a new venture for Phil or is it material for a new album from Adele? As we said, it’s been three years since we had anything new from the ‘Chasing Pavements’ star.

We couldn’t believe it when we heard it had been three years since Adele had released new material but it’s true, ’21’ was the last album we had from Adele.

The album featured the Adele classics ‘Rolling In The Deep’, ‘Set Fire To The Rain’ and ‘Someone Like You’, all perfect songs for breakups.


Fear not however as new music is expected from Adele at some point in 2014 and it was confirmed that Genesis frontman Phil Collins was working with the Brit school singer during an interview with Inside South Florida when he said: “I’ve just started to work with Adele.”

Hold onto your seats for this one though. Phil Collins admitted in the interview that he wasn’t familiar with Adele or her incredible vocals: “I wasn’t actually too aware […] I live in a cave, but she’s achieved an incredible amount. I really love her voice. I love some of this stuff she’s done, too.”

We can only assume that the pair are working together on Adele’s new album after Phil Collins announced his retirement from music back in 2011.

According to Billboard, Phil confirmed that he had been missing writing and it looks like that’s where his focus will lie as opposed to performing.


The Genesis frontman said: “I’ve decided I kind of missed that writing creative stuff, so I’m trying to get back into writing, and that’s getting into a certain head space and personal drive.”

Either way this is incredibly exciting for Adele and Phil Collins fans as both are outstanding at what they do individually and we can only begin to imagine what they can create together.

Time will tell however though as soon as we know more we’ll update you on Twitter and Facebook.

Watch Adele perform ‘Someone Like You’ at the BRIT Awards back in 2011.
