Ray Davies newest project is an album of collaborations with big names. The former leader of The Kinks is recording new versions of old songs. Which includes a new version of the Kinks’ Better Things, featuring Bruce Springsteen, and a rendition of the 1972 single Celluloid Heroes, with Jon Bon Jovi. Ray said in a interview, “ Bruce Springsteen has been fantastic. I went out to his farm in New Jersey to record that. He’s a very generous performer. And I was blown away by what a Kinks fan he was. He’s got every record we ever made.

His solo work, which started in 1985 with ‘Return to Waterloo’ and that includes moments such as ‘Working Man’s Café’ (2007) is also superb.
