Phil Collins has been advised by doctors not to travel for the next few months after undergoing back surgery. As a result, he will be unable to undertake promotion for his Take A Look At Me Now retrospective campaign until January next.

Atlantic records has decided to postpone the release of the reissued and extended Face Value - his solo debut originally released in 1981 - until January, 2016. Both Sides, the follow-up, will also be released at that point, similarly remastered with extras..

“I am so disappointed to have to delay the release but am looking forward to being able to properly get behind this release in the new year when I can move again,” says the former Genesis singer, drummer and solo artist.

Collins has sold in excess of 100 million albums, and his solo records consistently made the number one spot. Eight of his albums will be issued as extended and remastered editions in the new Take A Look At Me Now retrospective reissue campaign, with demos and b-sides included.

The remaining six albums of Collins’ solo discography will follow in the coming months.
