Phil Collins' entire solo catalog will now live under the same roof as Warner Music Group announces a new worldwide deal with the singer-songwriter. As part of the deal, all eight of Collins' studio albums will be remastered and released, beginning this fall with his breakout 1981 solo effort Face Value and 1993's Both Sides.
The artist's first block of solo albums, including '80s classics No Jacket Required and …But Seriously, were originally released via Virgin. Since 1996's Dance Into the Light, however, Collins has been with WMG's Atlantic, the longtime home of his old band Genesis. "I've had a fantastic relationship with Warner and Atlantic throughout my career and I'm thrilled to be continuing that," says Collins. "I'm working with them now on these new presentations. Very exciting."
WMG also promises to release "other uniquely curated titles from the vaults" as part of the deal. In addition to eight solo studio albums, Collins has released one live album and two compilations.
"Phil Collins has had one of the most prolific careers in modern music," says Tim Fraser-Harding, president of Global Catalog, Recorded Music for Warner Music Group. "As a longtime member of the Atlantic Records family, it is a joyous occasion to now be able to work with his unprecedented catalog on a fully global scale. We are looking forward to collaborating with Phil on some sensational new releases that will excite his longtime fans while also helping to introduce his songs to new generations of music lovers."
Collins' many solo hits include "In the Air Tonight," "I Don't Care Anymore," "Against All Odds," "Another Day In Paradise" and, of course, "Sussudio."
