Phil Collins Appears On The New Studio Album By John Martyn

The newly released posthumous album by the late John Martyn, Heaven and Earth, features a guest appearance by Phil Collins. Martyn recorded the album in 2008, less than a year before passing away in January 2009 of pneumonia. Collins added supporting vocals on John's cover of the Collins' penned tune "Can't Turn Back the Years" (one of my personal favorites from Collins' solo catalog) originally released on Phil's Both Sides album. Producer Jim Tullio stated, “After John passed, I spoke with Phil and he really wanted to sing on the track… [Phil] said he had always wanted John to record one of his songs. You can hear the emotion in their voices.” Collins and Martyn have collaborated in the past on albums like Martyn's acclaimed Grace and Danger and No Little Boy
