Ray Davies Revisits Classic Songs With Top Names
Ray Davies has revisited some of his greatest songs, in the process collaborating with some of the biggest names in rock on his new album, due out on November 1.
It’s called See My Friends, with each track featuring the Kinks mastermind teaming up with a different major musician. These include Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, Jon Bovi and Rich Sambora and Billy Corgan.
Says Davies: “With some tracks I had to appreciate the style of the other artists, otherwise it would have sounded unbalanced. And I wanted the album to work as an entire listening experience but each track had a life of its own”.
The full track listing is:
1. Better Things – with Bruce Springsteen
2. Celluloid Heroes – with Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora
3. Days/This Time Tomorrow – with Mumford & Sons
