Phil Collins working with British songstress Adele
LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Veteran British rocker Phil Collins said in comments aired on Friday that he has started collaborating with compatriot Adele, reported to be working on a follow-up to her hit 2011 album 21. The former Genesis frontman, who effectively retired from music a few years ago, gave no more details of his cooperation with the multiple Grammy-winning British songstress.
"I've just started to work with Adele," he told a TV interviewer for Inside South Florida, adding: "She contacted me to write together."
Collins, 62, said he had not known much about 25-year-old London-born Adele, who had huge hits with songs including Someone Like You and Rolling In The Deep.
"I wasn't actually too aware. I live in a cave," he joked. "But she's achieved an incredible amount. I really love her voice. I love some of that stuff she's done, too," he added.
