The 59-track album is out later this year...

Phil Collins has announced details of a massive 59-track boxset that will feature songs from Paul McCartney, Joe Cocker, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, his band Genesis and many more.

Plays Well With Others is described as a "career-spanning" album, and will be released on September 28.

The title of the album was inspired by a T-shirt featuring the phrase, that was gifted to Collins by Genesis’ touring drummer Chester Thompson.

The slogan reflects Collins’ eager willingness to play drums at any recording session going.

The album will also feature songs from David Crosby, the Bee Gees, John Martyn, Adam Ant, Philip Bailey, Chaka Khan, Howard Jones, ABBA's Frida, the Isley Brothers, the Four Tops, Tears for Fears, Annie Lennox, and Bryan Adams.

“I’ve done what I wanted for most of it, and got paid well for doing something I’d have done for nothing: playing the drums,” he said.

“During that time I’ve played with most of my heroes, most have become close friends. Over these four CDs you’ll find a mere smattering of those moments.”
