Phil Collins presents his eagerly anticipated new soul album project 'Going Back' on September 13th, pre-ceeded by the release of the single '(Love Is Like A) Heatwave' on September 6th.. 'Going Back' sees Phil Collins faithfully recreating some of his all time favourite classic soul gems, and features a tangible link to the past courtesy of performances from three members of legendary Motown session players the Funk Brothers - bassist Bob Babbitt and guitarists Eddie Willis and Ray Monette. "My idea, though, was not to bring anything 'new' to these already great records, but to try to recreate the sounds and feelings that I had when I first heard them," say Collins. "My intention was to make an 'old' record, not a 'new' record. To be able to have three of the surviving Funk Brothers play on all the tracks was unbelievable. There was one moment when they were tracking '(Love Is Like A) Heatwave' that I experienced a wave of happiness and wonder that this was actually happening to me!" Phil Collins launched 'Going Back' with a series of select shows. After four intimate dates at New York's Roseland Ballroom, he also performed a special date at the Montreux Jazz Festival. The first chance for British fans to see performances of the new material comes with a primetime ITV special live show that will be televised on September 11th. Phil Collins' exceptionally successful musical career spans four decades, 100 million album sales (which rises to 250 million if you count his work with Genesis), eight Grammy Awards, an Oscar and a Golden Globe. His extraordinary run of hits includes five UK number one albums, three number one singles and a further nine top ten hits. This is an exclusive vinyl single box set with 15 7" singles, including an exclusive version of Smokey Tune MY GIRL (Live from New York).
