The singer delays his reissue campaign due to health issues
Phil Collins is delaying the Take A Look At Me Now reissue campaign featuring Face Value and Both Sides, due to emergency back surgery the drummer/singer recently underwent. The singer’s label and publicist made the announcement earlier today (Oct 16th).
“We are sorry to have to let you know that Phil, in conjunction with Atlantic Records, has decided to postpone the release of the first set of albums from the #takealookatmenow campaign, ‘Face Value’ and ‘Both Sides’, from November 6th to January 29th 2016,” a press release states. “This is due to Phil’s recent back surgery meaning he would be unable to give his fans the best experience possible throughout the promotion of the campaign, which would not be possible in November.”
Collins wants to be able to properly promote the reissues and says, “I am so disappointed to have to delay the release but am looking forward to being able to properly get behind this release in the new year when I can move again!”
The reissues will still contain all of the features and configurations that we previously reported. Only the release date has changed.
In better news, Collins has announced that he will be releasing a limited edition 7″ vinyl version of “In The Air Tonight” for Black Friday on November 27th. The disc will include some very special extras inclduing the B-side “The Roof Is Leaking” and a 16 page cartoon booklet drawn by Collin’s brother Clive Collins. More details to be released soon.
