Collins unsure he will ever release another original album

Phil CollinaVeteran rocker Phil Collins doubts he will ever release another album full of original material again - because he would rather spend time with his children.

The former Genesis frontman is preparing to release Going Back, his first project in eight years, this September (10), but the disc does not feature any new compositions - it features Collins covering some of his favourite soul and Motown records

The former Genesis frontman is preparing to release Going Back, his first project in eight years, this September (10), but the disc does not feature any new compositions - it features Collins covering some of his favourite soul and Motown records.

The 59 year old insists he still crafts new songs from time to time, but may never collate them for one single release because he prefers people to hear his tracks as and when he makes them.

He tells the Associated Press, "I'll write the songs that I know are good, and I may make a copy for my kids, or put it on the Internet somehow.

"What's more important to me is that I spend as much time at home with my children, which I have not been able to do most of my life. So that to me is the priority, not making another record."

Collins has four children from three different marriages. He split from his third wife, Orianne Cevey, in 2006 and their divorce was finalised in 2007.
