According to billboard.com, Ray Davies has a new deal:
Kinks leader Ray Davies has signed with V2, which will on Sept. 6 release his long-in-the-works, as-yet-untitled solo debut. A spokesperson says the track list has not been confirmed, but Davies has been performing a number of new tunes in recent live shows, including "The Morning After" and "The Tourist."
"I've done lots of songs, but whether they're any good is another matter," Davies told the U.K.'s Independent newspaper last fall. "All the songs are different, but they're all about me, which is quite worrying when you think about it."
Well, then, let's not think about it. Usually an Advanced artist would say that his newest project is the best thing ever, but I'll let this one slide.
