Phil Collins recreates album covers for their remasters

Pics 20/04/2017

Phil Collins began reissuing some of his most loved albums in November of 2015 as part of a collection called “Take a look at me now…”

People started noticing something curious about the reissues: the Phil Collins on the new album covers looks quite a bit older.

And that’s exactly what Collins was going for.

“I’ve always been quite proud of my demos and have often made them available as B-sides, but with a few exceptions, I have avoided including those on these collections,” Collins explained in a press release. “Instead, I’ve focused on how nicely the songs developed when played on stage, rather than showing how they originated.”
