Phillip Phillips’ New Album Collateral Is Finally Out

Just before midnight on January 19, Phillip Phillips’ new album Collateral was finally released. The celebration from fans across social media has been non-stop, and as of this writing the album is sitting at #12 on the iTunes overall album charts. Phillip shared a beautiful message with fans just before the album dropped reflecting on the struggles and triumphs of the last few years:

“Gonna rest peacefully tonight. I did what was right. Good things happen if you work hard at what you believe in. There are going to be struggles. Fight. Get up & live YOUR life. Listen to it. Feel it. Go with your gut. Thank you for the support & staying with me. Now let’s go!”

And again this morning, Phillip shared a very special video talking about what the release of this album means to him.

Phillip wasted no time to get things going promoting the album, performing “Dance With Me” and “Into The Wild” from Collateral on Fox News early Friday. Errol Cooney, guitar player extraordinaire and a constant musical companion to Phillips in the early years, made a surprise appearance alongside Phillip. Take a look at Phillip and Errol performing “Into The Wild” below!

Don’t wait one more minute to get it, Collateral is available everywhere!

One Week to the Release of Collateral, Phillip Phillips Gives Us Into The Wild

Are you ready? Really ready?
Phillip Phillips has released “Into the Wild,” the closing song from Collateral ahead of the album’s full release next week on January 19.

By far our favourite of the four songs Phillip has released officially, “Into the Wild” is a rousing love song featuring an opening electric guitar that morphs into the most uplifting riff, deep booming drums, and soaring vocals by Phillip. The lyrics evoke a love that is exciting and mysterious, the kind that causes delicious butterflies in your stomach with its promise of adventure, and maybe a little danger. Listening, I was immediately reminded of that feeling you get when you walk into nature that overtakes you with its grandiose, awesome scale — wild, untameable, sublimely beautiful. Its anthemic chorus (and bridge?) is to be sung out loud, hands stretched high into a summer night sky by an ecstatic audience. I predict many such moments in Phillip’s future tours.

I did not think it was possible for us to love a song more than “Miles,” but this is Phillip Phillips in 2018, outdoing himself with each new bit of music he shares with us. And though it feels completely new, we already had had a taste of this song when Phillip debuted it in July 2016 at the Ravinia Festival. The recording on the album achieves something wonderful which is to make the song sound quite open and spacious, and not overly sweet despite having such a feel-good, uplifting melody.

The wait has been long, but it’s just one more week until we get eight more brand new songs from Phillip. We will be “Into the Wild” until then.
