In a blog post in their official site, AED Records wrote:

He’s [Collins] going like the clappers at a new record, about two thirds recorded at the tome of writing. We have a working title.


They also revealed that the singer would put out another album by the singer – also called ‘Down The Line’ – would be released on iTunes in December.

Collins released his seventh studio album, ‘Losing Sleep’, in 2010. He embarked upon his solo career after Orange Juice released their final studio LP ‘The Orange Juice’ in 1984.

Earlier this year, he produced the debut album by Frankie And The Heartstrings, ‘Hunger’, which was released in February. Their singer Frankie Francis has a Collins self-portrait tattooed on his arm, which was designed when the Orange Juice frontman was recovering from a brain haemorrhage in 2005.
