Founding Kinks member and guitarist Dave Davies is releasing an album of never-before-heard solo material. Titled Decade, the album features material recorded from 1971 to 1979 and arrives this October 12 via Red River Entertainment/Green Amp.

“I am so pleased that after all this time these tracks are being released to see the light of day,” Davies wrote in a statement. “These songs have been silently nagging at me to be recognised all these years. At last I can proudly present this album Decade to the world.”

Included with the release is the single “Cradle to the Grave,” which can be heard below ahead of the release. Davies’ most recent solo album, Rippin’ Up Time, was released in 2014. The Kinks recently announced that they’d be reissuing their 1968 album The Village Green Preservation Society this year for its 50th anniversary. The band also said that they’d be reuniting to record a new album, their first in over 25 years. Listen to Davies’ new solo single below.
