Phil Collins has revealed that he is currently working with Adele on new material for her upcoming album.

Speaking to Inside South Florida, 62-year-old Collins said: "I've just started to work with Adele. She contacted me to write together. I wasn't actually too aware [of her]. I live in a cave.

"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."

Adele is currently said to be working on a follow-up to her 20-million second studio album, 21, which is expected to be finished later this year.

In November the former Genesis frontman hinted that he might make a return to music, hinting that a Genesis reunion could even be in the offing.
