Phil Collins has claimed that he is working on new music with Adele.
Speaking in a new interview with Inside South Florida, Collins claimed to have not really heard of the singer, who achieved huge success in 2011 with her second album ’21’. He went on to say, however, that he was writing new music with her having been impressed with her voice and level of success.
“I’ve just started to work with Adele. She contacted me to write together,” said the former Genesis drummer. “I wasn’t actually too aware [of her]. I live in a cave [but] she’s achieved an incredible amount and I really love her voice and I love some of that stuff she’s done. So, to me, it’s always an eye-opener. Educational.”
In April 2013, it was reported that Adele had started work on her follow-up to ’21’, which has now sold over 26 million copies worldwide. According to the report, the singer was in the studio with Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford and singer-songwriter Kid Harpoon, who has previously worked with Florence & The Machine and Jessie Ware.
