Colin Meloy Sings The Kinks

As you may know, Colin will be hitting the road in November and January for his first solo tour in five years and he has recorded a new cover EP to bring along with him. Through a process involving public polling, meditative introspection and a completely random lottery, the subject for this tour’s EP has been determined: The Kinks.

Like the preceding Colin Meloy Sings… entries (Morrissey, Shirley Collins, and Sam Cooke), Colin Meloy Sings The Kinks will be available exclusively on the solo tour but for those who can’t make it out to see him, NPR is currently streaming Colin’s version of “Do You Remember Walter?” from The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society here. We’ll include the track list for the EP below and make sure to visit to see the full list of tour dates.
