The Kinks' Ray Davies Working on Collaboration
Tue, 31 Aug 2010 12:49:17
The collaboration album that The Kinks' Ray Davies - the ex-husband of Pretender Chrissie Hynde- is working on will have quite a few New Jersey ties. Davies is working with Bruce Springsteen on a version of "Better Things," and Bon Jovi will perform "Celluloid Heroes" with Davies, according to our friends at Rolling Stone. See, I told you it was a Jersey thing.
Other artists who are rumored to be Davies' collaborators include Billy Corgan, Spoon, Frank Black and Lucinda Williams. It has yet to be determined if the collaboration album will feature only Kinks' covers or if Davies' solo material will be included on it as well. The as-yet-untitled album is due out before the end of the year.
Are you interested in hearing the Ray Davies collaboration album? Are you excited about him working with Jersey boys like Springsteen and Jovi?
