Hello, I Must Be Going! is the second solo studio album by English drummer and singer-songwriter Phil Collins. It was released on 5 November 1982[3] on Virgin Records in the United Kingdom and on Atlantic Records in North America, and named after the Marx Brothers’ song of the same name. After his band Genesis took a break in activity in late 1981, Collins started work on a follow-up to his first solo album Face Value (1981).

Hello, I Must Be Going! received a more reserved commercial reaction than Face Value, but it nonetheless reached No. 2 in the United Kingdom and No. 8 in the United States. In total, Collins released eight singles from the album, with various tracks released as singles in different countries. The most successful was the first US and second UK single, a cover of “You Can’t Hurry Love” by The Supremes, which went to No. 1 in the United Kingdom and No. 10 in the United States. Collins supported the album with his 1982–1983 tour, his first as a solo artist. The album earned Collins a Brit Award nomination for British Male Artist in 1983,[4] and “I Don’t Care Anymore” was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Vocal Performance, Male.
In December 1981, Collins’s band Genesis entered an eight-month break in activity after touring Abacab (1981). He started work on a follow-up to his first solo album, Face Value (1981), which mainly concerned events in his personal life including his divorce from his first wife.[5] Collins was aware that Hello, I Must Be Going! contains even greater amounts of material concerning his private life, and reasoned its concentration down to feeling guilty regarding the divorce and “to be purely sentimental about it”.[6] He described the album years later: “If my first album was ‘I’m divorced and I’m miserable’ … my next one was ‘I’m going to kick this fucker to bits'”.[7] However, upon meeting his second wife Jill Tavelman and releasing Hello, I Must Be Going!, Collins noted a change in his songwriting: “[I’m] happier […] I write happy songs now”.[6]

The album features elements of groove pop that Collins would utilise further with his next album, No Jacket Required (1985).[5] “I Cannot Believe It’s True” has been compared to “I Missed Again” from Face Value “right down to the undulating rhythms and swaying brass”.[5] Collins confessed to “a distinct lack of judgement” in recording the drums for “Thru These Walls” as the drum fill he used matched what he had done for “In the Air Tonight” from Face Value. To him, that is the sole comparison between the two albums, despite being called out for rehashing similar material for Hello, I Must Be Going![6]

The album’s sleeve contains various photographs from Collins’s family life, which he had also done for Face Value. Collins wanted both albums to be a “matching set, something that felt like it was from the same bloke”.[6] Included is a picture of his young son Simon in a Superman costume, which Collins found humorous to include but later found that some people misinterpreted it as focusing the album too much on his personal life.[6]
