Discussing his first post-retirement activity, rock legend Phil Collins
hinted at a collaboration with British star Adele
, noting the popular singer got in touch with him for future endeavors."She contacted me to write together,"
Collins told Florida TV
. "I actually wasn't too aware of her. You know, I live in a cave, I think. But she has achieved an incredible amount, and I really love her voice. I love some of that stuff that she’s done."
Explaining how he became aware of Adele's work, Phil pointed at his kids. "You know, I don't listen to
[music] too much,"
he said (via Ultimate Classic Rock
). "I come across things by accident - whether it's my young kids, Nicholas and Matthew. They listen to music a lot. And Nicholas is a great drummer."
Admitting there's more to modern scene than most might think, Collins added: "So, I'm always interested to see what they are listening to. Lily, the next one up in age, she has good playlists on her iPod. I always think: 'Oh, there's nothing too much happening,' and she plays stuff and I say, 'What’s that!? That was great!'"
