It’s been a few months since we’ve mentioned Ray Davies’ Bruce Springsteen-featuring duet album, but that doesn’t mean the project has died. As Hipsters United points out (via 24B), the former Kinks frontman recently teamed up with The Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan to record a version of 1981 Kinks hit Destroyer. Plus, Davies’ website reports that collaborations with Spoon, the Pixies’ Frank Black, Mumford & Sons, Amy Macdonald, and Paloma Faith also have taken place.
There is a bit of bad news though (or maybe good, depending on how you feel): The Killers’ previously announced collaboration with Davies will not be included on the album.
A tracklist for the effort has not yet been announced, but the release is still set for 2010. More details as they become available.
