Listen to an exclusive, never heard before version of Phil Collins' hit Dance Into The Light

Music legend Phil Collins is releasing a brand new edition of his 1996 classic Dance Into The Light and The Sun has the exclusive first listen.

The track, from his sixth studio album of the same name, is a never-heard-before live version which the Genesis star has put out to celebrate his incredible career.

You can hear the song for the first time in the player below.

Phil, 65, is famous for being an incredible drummer but we can reveal he has taken up a new instrument altogether bagpipes.

He uses traditional Scottish pipes to help warm up his voice before recordings and live shows.

In an exclusive chat, he said: "I play the bagpipes. I have always loved the sound of bagpipes. And I discovered them on the Both Sides album

"I had a great Scottish piper who came to my house to give me lessons and so I took them on the road.

"And I found the breathing, once you get them going, helped me before the shows to open up the lungs and get ready; (with the noise) obviously everybody left the building."

However, his 14-year-old son Nicholas is following in his footsteps as a keen drummer and songwriter.

Phil added: "Nicholas is a fantastic drummer and he is starting to write songs. He really has a natural thing for it. So I think he could it."

"It is difficult nowadays. I think confidence in him doing what he wants to do, which is be a musician."

"He has a band that come and rehearse at the house."

Phil is reissuing all of his studio albums with bonus discs this year as part of his Take A Look At Me Now campaign.

New versions of Dance Into Light and Hello, I Must Be Going are the latest batch to be released and come out next Friday.
