(Newser) – Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord? Phil Collins is back. After announcing his retirement in 2011, Collins is jumping back into the music business. The British singer and drummer tells Rolling Stone that he's "no longer officially retired...the horse is out of the stable and I'm raring to go." The 64-year-old wrote on his website in 2011 that he wanted to leave music to father his two sons "on a daily basis." The former Genesis frontman's last album of new material was 2002's Testify. Rolling Stone says Collins is planning a new solo album and tour. "My kids are now 10 and 14 and they want to see what their dad does," Collins says. "They were in nappies when I was last on the road...I'd like to take them out so they can enjoy it."
