- The Big Interview with Dan Rather Season 4 Episode 8 30/01/16: English actor, instrumentalist, producer, singer and songwriter Phil Collins talks about his anticipated return to the music scene, his record breaking success and a possible future partnership with singer Adele. The celebrated singer-songwriter opens up about his historic career, which includes one Oscar, eight GRAMMYs, a spot in the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, and countless hits such as “In The Air Tonight,” “Sussudio,” “Another Day In Paradise,” and many more. The pair touch upon a variety of topics during the interview, including Collins’ choice to release re-mastered versions of his classic albums, and Collins’ meeting with chart-topping superstar Adele—whom he had never heard of prior to meeting her. In January 2016, Collins kicked off his Take A Look At Me Now campaign of remastered material, starting with his debut album, Face Value, and his fifth LP, Both Sides. Opening up about this process, Collins says, “It’s basically like having something at home you’ve never polished, and you give it a polish and it looks like something else, it looks new… We [added] a second CD for every album, so Face Value has a second CD with it, which has got live material, and rare demos the people won’t have heard. I re-shot all the cover art, so it’s the same picture, but it’s me now. I thought that would tell people that I’m involved with this, and it’s not just a marketing ploy.
