The X Factor runner-up, who lost out to girlband Little Mix in the 2011 final, has apparently reworked the song into a pop track.
"I'm a huge fan of the original 'Seven Nation Army' and I hope people like my take on it," Collins told The Sun.
"I'm so happy to be releasing my debut album and can't wait for everyone to hear it."
Collins's version of 'Seven Nation Army' will be released on March 4, followed by his debut album on March 12.
"The music is really coming together. I've found my niche now, I've found exactly what it is that I want to do and it's looking good," he recently said of the upcoming record.
X Factor mentor Gary Barlow is executive producer of the album and Collins has written "six or seven" songs for the project.
I don't think it's the best footing to start his career with a rushed cover, plus the album is out for Mother's Day but I wouldn't have thought this was the best single to promote it to mums... depends how his version sounds.
