See classic album covers updated with modern images after Phil Collins recreates original artwork for reissues

From Blonde and Culture Club to Sir Cliff Richard and Phil himself, see how timeless records would look like if the star's released them today.

Like many artists end up doing at one point, Phil Collins is reissuing his classic albums for a new generation - but he's done it with a twist.

The former Genesis rocker has replaced his original mug with his now-aging face as he makes sure fans get something a bit different with the re-released back catalologue. The collection included updates of the original artwork, and the 65-year-old star has actually aged remarkably well since he began his career as a solo artist over three decades ago.

Phil Collins - Face Value - Reissue Cover

Despite a few wrinkles, Phil looks great on the almost-identical recreation of his Face Value album. Originally posted on the Mail Online , here are five more timeless records given the same treatment.

Culture Club - Kissing to be Clever

Culture Club - Kissing to be Clever

Boy George is looking VERY different nowadays - and it certainly gives a different twist to Culture Club's 1984 record. The still-youthful face of the 54-year-old doesn't quite fit with the artwork.

Bob Dylan - Blonde on Blonde

OK, so it's fair enough that this looks very different, considering it was released 50 years ago. Still, even now 74-year-old folk hero Bob Dylan carries it off with an unrivaled sense of cool.

Kate Bush - Best Of

Kate Bush became a global superstar aged just 19 when debut single Wuthering Heights hit the top of the charts. Now, she looks just as incredible and youthful decades later in this mocked up version of the collection's artwork.

Blondie - Denis

Blondie's Debbie Harry became the sex symbol for a generation, and the rock icon stunned on the artistic front cover of their album Denis. In this recreated version, the legendary performer has lost none of her glamour and class.

Cliff Richard - Cliff Sings

When Cliff Sings was released in 1959, the singer's looks saw him nickname the Peter Pan of Pop. He's understandably aged over almost six decades, and it makes for a very different cover.
